Image information is coded in a thin line of light using optical dispersion. Here the image appears freely suspended like a hologram.
[The] DSP can compensate for very large chromatic and polarization mode dispersion caused by optical fibers and eliminate the need of optical dispersion compensators and the associated optical amplifiers.
The new material has been subject to the Taber abrasion test (which measures changes in the thickness, weight and optical dispersion of a sample placed against a rotating abrasion wheel), where it shows superior performance to a standard ribbon even after five times more rotations (as illustrated).

The diffractive surface features a negative optical dispersion, which yields color correction and minimized chromatic aberration.
Coherent detection with polarization-multiplexed DQPSK technology improves receiver sensitivity and compensates for optical dispersion, resulting in superior cost savings and optical performance when migrating 40G and 100G networks.
The 23 peer-reviewed papers address challenges in material fabrication for engineering light localization, optical dispersion, and plasmonic fields in complex optical media.
The products reportedly include a dynamically tunable laser, either a PIN or an APD receiver and optical dispersion compensation techniques, and are designed for metro and long haul DWDM networks, with dispersion reach of 80 to over 350 km.
