Optics/photonics for fiber and wireless communication

The ever-increasing demand for bandwidth and the number of devices and processes that need to be connected implies that existing forms of information exchange will be insufficient within a few years. The development of future multi-terabit communication technologies will be based on optical infrastructure and technology. Technologies needed to address these issues range from laser satellite communications in support of the growing Internet of Things to integrated photonics devices that help increase communication capacity and reduce energy consumption in data centers and consumer communications around the world.
