DARPA nears light-speed data transfer with new hollow fibers

07/19/2013 | ExtremeTech

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency -- an R&D arm of the U.S. Department of Defense -- is advancing hollow-core fiber technology that has the potential to transmit data at 99.7% the speed of light. The fiber -- which boosts bandwidth and offers speeds 30% greater than traditional fiber -- is said to offer significantly lower latency and support light travel over longer distances.
