Event description

Description

Ever wondered what ‘Optical Communications’ really is? And how it’s possible to communicate through light? And what this means for YOU?

Fiber-optic communication is a method of transmitting information from one place to another by sending pulses of light through an optical fiber; optical fiber is used by many telecommunications companies to transmit telephone signals and enable Internet and cable television signals…increasingly shaping most of our activity in the virtual world.

To see how this communication occurs, join us for the frist time with a BTS interactive tour of UCL’s world renowned Optical Networks Group (ONG) laboratory. We’ll showcase our strange but wonderful equipment, discuss path- breaking research & field all your ‘what if’ questions!

Tours will be led by our world-class researchers…don’t miss an opportunity to grill us!

The event will be supported by the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) TRANSNET Programme www.transnet.org.uk
