Ultra-fast magnetic switching with potential to transform fiber optical communications

Researchers at CRANN and Trinity’s School of Physics have discovered that a new material can act as a super-fast magnetic switch. When struck by successive ultra-short laser pulses it exhibits "toggle switching" that could increase the capacity of the global fiber optic cable network by an order of magnitude.
