Increasing the Capacity of Optical Nonlinear Interfering Channels (ICONIC)

Prize: NWOVidiScientific


Optical fibers are strands of glass with the thickness of a human hair which carry nearly all the world Internet traffic. However, the installed fibers are running out of capacity. This project will use mathematics to increase the capacity of these fibers, which will guarantee faster future broadband connections.
