A project underway at The University of New Mexico (UNM) is aimed at demonstrating that semiconductor laser devices can send data at a bandwidth speed of over 100 Gbits/s, with potential applications that could result in ten times the speed of current fibre optic networks.

The project addresses the need for faster data transfer by increasing the speed at which signals are first generated to send through a fibre optic network. It involves a multidisciplinary research team that is led by UNM Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Professor Marek Osiński, and includes Gennady Smolyakov, ECE Research Associate Professor, a senior collaborator on the project.
