Tue 23-12-2014 DOLL: Denmark's Smart Lighting Lab
At the Danish Outdoor Lighting Lab, or DOLL for short, the streetlights are anything but ordinary. From brightening when cars and people pass to turning on and off with an iPad, these lights promise to help city officials save electricity and cut carbon emissions in the future. Check out the video above to tour the lab's urban facility yourself.

Tue 25-11-2014 Snoet lys kan mangedoble datahastigheden
Et nyt eksperiment viser, at snoede lasersignaler kan sendes uforstyrret gennem atmosfærisk luft.

De seneste år har flere forskningsgrupper verden over taget hul på en ny teknik til at øge kapaciteten af eksisterende kommunikationskanaler. Det går populært sagt ud på at sno elektromagnetiske bølger på en særlig måde, så information kan sendes med forskellige grad af snoning over samme fysiske kanal.

Princippet kan udnyttes både for laserlys i det optiske eller infra­røde område og for radiobølger ved frekvenser, der anvendes til mobilkommunikation.

Teknikken er afprøvet både gennem luften og i en optisk fiber produceret i Danmark.

Fri 07-11-2014 Ultra-high-density spatial division multiplexing with a few-mode multicore fibre
Single-mode fibres with low loss and a large transmission bandwidth are a key enabler for long-haul high-speed optical communication and form the backbone of our information-driven society. However, we are on the verge of reaching the fundamental limit of single-mode fibre transmission capacity. Therefore, a new means to increase the transmission capacity of optical fibre is essential to avoid a capacity crunch.
