Long distance telecom-fiber research featured in OSA
Congratulations Prof Andre Luiten for contributing to outstanding research in radio-astronomy. A large team demonstrated for the first time that a clock signal could be sent along 300km of optical fibre and be recovered at the end of the line with very little noise. This enabled a special type of radio-astronomy called Very-Long-Baseline Interferometry (VLBI).
