Sea Change: The Challenges Facing Submarine Optical Communications

Valerie C. Coffey

Cable providers are maximizing fiber optic network capacity, reach and value for increasingly advanced intercontinental communications. How vulnerable is an all-optical network to interruptions?


Optical Wireless Communications: The New “Hot Spots”?

Soon, indoor solid-state lighting may feed data to our electronic devices. “Li-Fi” could take some of the burden off crowded radio frequencies and open up new possibilities for communications and positioning applications.

Multimodal Nonlinear Optical Microscopy: From Biophotonics to Geophotonics
