Doug Vining Broadband with a twist

How do you cram more data into a fibre optic channel? By giving it a twist. Optic data protocols that use twisted light waves could boost speeds by four orders of magnitude - an exponential increase.
By a strange twist of fate, we recently published a MindBullet that suggested we could also increase the power and capacity of wireless signals by transmitting them in a spiral vortex. It seems that reality might be catching up with the future yet again!

Doug Vining Creating a vortex to speed communication

Researchers have succeed in making a device that can decode twisted light, improving the throughput for fibre optic data transmissions dramatically. Years ago we speculated that something similar might be possible for radio frequency transmissions. Could it happen in the future?
