Light and Optical Fibres
Speaker: Prof. David Richardson (U. Southampton)
The use of light to transmit data worldwide along optical fibres has revolutionised communications and made the world-wide-web truly worldwide. In the first part of the talk Professor Richardson FRS will survey the underlying physics and the earlier developments in the technology. He will then discuss recent developments, including those involving Southampton, and likely future developments in both transmission range and bandwidth.
