An optical fiber with 19 cores within a standard cladding diameter was developed, enabling a transmission capacity of 1.7 petabits per second.
Randomly coupled multi-core fibers require less power consumption in the digital signal processing compared to multi-mode fibers.
This is a major step to realize future transoceanic-class long-distance, large-capacity optical communication systems.
