SOUTHAMPTON, UK -- Fibercore, a UK based global market leader in the design and manufacture of specialty optical fiber has developed an advanced capability for the fabrication of Multicore Fibers. Standard, demonstration product has four cores, but the fabrication method is exceptionally versatile, allowing virtually any practical configuration, spacing and number of cores. Multicore is an exciting new technology that is providing a platform for the next generation of telecommunication devices and sensor systems.

In the telecoms sector, Multicore fibers can be used to reduce dramatically the amount of space required and increase the bandwidth of cables used in data centers and exchanges.

Data cables can be reduced in size by having, for instance, eight cores within one fiber. This would replace the existing technology from an eight fiber ribbon to a single fiber cable, dramatically reducing the cross sectional area of a cable. Alternatively, the eight fibers can be replaced by eight Multicore fibers, increasing the cable bandwidth by eight times.

In the biomedical sector, using Fibercore designs with photosensitive cores, Fiber Bragg Gratings may be inscribed into each core providing the ability to use the fiber as a 3D shape sensor.

Multicore fibers come with the option for fiber customization, providing the best possible fiber for applications. Fibercore offer a drilling technology to position the cores, making it possible to place virtually any core in any position within the fiber.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
