Telecommunications

The next time you send an email, video-chat with your family, or watch Netflix, remember that without photonics, the Internet as we know it would not exist. Fiber optic communication networks criss-crossing the country and globe are what make the Internet affordable, accessible, and fast around the world. The optical fiber, and the optical components and equipment attached to it, bring videos, images and data into our work and homes, and to the towers that connect to our mobile phones. This field continues to advance to higher data rates and shorter wait times to enable better capability, such as for 5G wireless networks.
