The fastest wireless of the fiber with twisted light

The fastest wireless of the fiber with twisted light

Scientists have found a world to make wireless faster than fiber by eliminating cables: twisted light, curved light

Scientists could now have a way to eliminate cables, while offering greater speed: the twisted light, the curved light. However fast fiber-optic communications have become, they still remain hampered by a key limitation: it is still necessary to transmit such data via cables, which limits where to transmit and the economic accessibility of the fastest connections.

Twisted Light faster than fiber

Some researchers have discovered a way to "bend" photons not only to include more data in each transmission, but also to survive interference from atmospheric turbulence. If you pass the light through a special hologram, you can give the photons an optical angular pulse that lets them carry more than 1 and 0 and, as long as the phase and intensity of the light are right, you can reliably transmit these data over long distances, this is the principle of the Twisted Light.

The research team has successfully tested such a connection in a one-kilometer section, making sure to carry out the tests in an urban environment where the turbulence of the tallest buildings could theoretically generate chaos.

<h2>Twisted light for wireless, still a lot to do</h2>
<p><strong>There is still a lot of work to do before this type of wireless connection, based on the twisted light, becomes practically usable.</strong> How do you serve a large number of people, and how is the data impacted by rain or snow? The technology clearly limited by the challenges of light transmission (and obviously not possible to use this system to transmit indoors), but it could be instrumental to the next generation of wireless networks in regards to the last mile. Instead of having to painstakingly wire all homes and offices to achieve multi-gigabit speeds, internet providers could use light-based wireless connections for large sections of their network and install cables only when absolutely necessary.</p>
