Optical communication: Can light speak?
The quantities of data produced today continue to increase, and that data must also be processed and stored. The photon, the smallest particle of light, can transmit data, visualize it—and store it. The diverse range of applications are one of the fair's exciting topics.
The information society continues to produce increasing volumes of data. The growth rates are breathtaking. It will be 8.6 exabytes in 2015. According to estimates, data volumes are expected to grow to more than 20 exabytes (1 Exabyte equals 1018 bytes) by the year 2020. Photons help us to keep up with this explosion in data. They transmit this data, they visualize it—and they store it, e.g. in the consumer electronics, office automation and printing sectors. They are the foundation for optical information and communication.
