Photonics 21

Work Group 1 - Information and Communication

The major highways of communication and information flows are optical. The data rates of the internet are scaling with advances in lasers, optical fibres and optical coding technologies. Bringing the benefits of broadband communications to European citizens presents both the challenges and the rewards for the next generation of photonic systems.
