THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH-SPEED
THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH-SPEED optical communications systems may be enhanced as a result of a new theory from scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The hypothesis describes light-pulse dynamics in optical fibers and explains how an interplay of noise, line imperfections and pulse collisions leads to deterioration of information in optical fiber lines. A better understanding of the physics will allow comparison of different techniques for suppressing information outages.
