Explore how fiber optics uses light to transmit data over long distances, and with integrated photonics, expands our virtual world beyond the web. In 2012, a team of researchers set a record, transmitting one petabit of data— that’s 10,000 hours of high-def video— over a fifty-kilometer cable, in a very second. This wasn’t simply any cable. It absolutely was a souped-up version of fiber optics, the hidden network that links our planet and makes the internet doable.
