Researchers Cram More Info into Fiber Optics

• arclein
"In fiber optics, we can send light at different colors and keep them separate at the end of the line," Ramachandran said. In the past, when engineers wanted to send more information than can be handled by the current crop of colors, "we would just add another color [and] call it multiplexing."

I had no idea we we are starting to saturate the fiber optic network.   Spinning photons is a clever boost but if I understand it a 4 fold one.  We keep increasing demand; I don't think it will be nearly enough.  But it sure is cool.
