Scientists have set a new data speed record using just a single laser to transmit the equivalent of 700 DVDs in one second.
Earlier this year, Japanese scientists set a world record sending 109 terabits per second using multiple lasers.
The scientists used a single laser to generate 325 optical frequencies within a narrow spectral band of laser wavelengths and transmitted the data over 50 kilometres of single-mode fibre.
