Towards an all-optical internet

Grant number: FF0344917

Abstract

The Federation Fellowship will build on the applicant's established and highly successful research program into key technologies for the all-optical Internet. Unlike the current Internet, which relies heavily on electronics for switching and routing, the all-optical Internet will use optics for these functions. The all-optical Internet will enable a vast increase in network capacity and will revolutionize telecommunications. The research program wil produce importatnt innovations and will advance the Australian knowledge base in optical comunications and photonics. The research will assist Asutralia to capitalize on this new technology and to become a significant player in the next phase of ..
