Chan & team develop speedier Internet using pure optical data transmission

EECS faculty member Vincent Chan, the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has demonstrated with his research team including EECS faculty member Muriel Médard, a new way of organizing optical networks that, in most cases, would eliminate the inefficient switching from optical data flow to electrical signals and back. The gains could result in an Internet from 100 to 1000 times faster and more efficient.
