A "world-first optical fibre as fine as a human hair" has been developed by scientists from the Macquarie University Photonics Research Centre, promising transmission of over 1 petabit of data per second.
An Ericsson-backed research project dubbed IRIS has produced a breakthrough silicon photonics switch designed for housing thousands of optical circuits on a single chip.
Innovation minister, senator Kim Carr, has officially kicked of a six year $23.8m research program into photonic chip technology at the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems. (CUDOS) that has the potential to revolutionise optical communications.
