Stanford engineers working to pack more laser beams, and data, into fiber optic strands

Research News

As digital traffic soars, researchers strive to send multiple laser beams, each with it’s own data stream, through fiber optic strands that can only handle a single beam today.

Expanding the Capacity of Fiber Optics

Stanford engineers are working to pack more laser beams, and data, into fiber optic strands.

Internet data travels on a laser beam through a fiber optic cable as thin as a human hair. Marvelous as that is, it may not be enough – as the volume of data grows, some researchers are asking, why waste an entire fiber on just a single beam of light?

Engineering is a popular and useful major for members of Stanford's rowing team.

On morning drives from campus to the Stanford Rowing and Sailing Center, the topic of conversation among rowers is often about how to use fluid dynamics to make the blade of an oar move faster through the water and improve boat speed.

It may be surprising to some that 18- to 22-year-olds spend this time talking about fluid dynamics or discussing internship experience with doing impact testing on glass for tablets and the process of making renewable medical devices, as opposed to talking about pop culture.
