  • Tiny laser gives big boost to high-speed data transmission

    University of Illinois engineers  -  from left, postdoctoral researcher  Fei Tan, graduate students Mong-Kai Wu  and Michael Liu, led by Milton Feng, front - developed a laser that can transmit data at a blazing fast 40 gigabits per second, without errors - the fastest in the U.S.
