DARPA develops next-gen fiber optics

By Jim Destefani / July 30, 2013

DARPA’s COUGAR hollow core optical fibers transmit light at 99.7 percent its speed in air, according to the agency. Credit: DARPA. Optical fibers typically consist of a transparent core surrounded by a transparent cladding material. The outer material has a lower index of refraction than the core material, thus trapping light in the core by…

Boltzmann distribution illustrated with balls distributed on a hilly landscape. At positive temperatures (left), as they are common in everyday life, most balls lie in the valley around minimum potential energy. They barely move and therefore also possess minimum kinetic energy. At infinite temperature (center) the balls spread evenly over low and high energies in…
