Bell Labs researcher honored with Charles H. Townes award

Bell Labs-Lucent Technologies (Murray Hill) researcher Linn F. Mollenauer received the Charles Hard Townes award at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics. The award, presented by the Optical Society of America (Washington, DC), cites Mollenauer`s "pioneering ultrafast optics in the 1.5-µm wavelength regime, demonstrating optical soliton propagation in fibers and developing innovative soliton systems that have set records for high-capacity repeaterless data transmission."
