    Breakthrough in THz Quantum Cascade Lasers Could Lead to Much Faster Data Rates

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A research team from the University of Leeds and the University of Nottingham believe they have found a way of delivering ultrafast modulation, by combining the power of acoustic and lightwaves. They published their findings in Nature Communications.

    The research involves the control of terahertz quantum cascade lasers, which the team reports could lead to the transmission of data at the rate of 100 gigabits per second, around one thousand times quicker than a fast Ethernet operating at 100 megabits a second.

    The lasers are thought to eventually provide ultrafast, short-hop wireless links where large data sets have to be transferred across hospital campuses or between research facilities on universities. To be able to send data…
