In science:

We experimentally demonstrate such an amplifier, operating at telecommunication wavelengths.
Heralded photon amplification for quantum communication
Then, we show how our results can be applied to the study of a random telecommunication network, where devices are placed at random locations and have random radii of interaction.
Fine Gaussian fluctuations on the Poisson space II: rescaled kernels, marked processes and geometric U-statistics
On the boolean model we consider a classical 2d-order U -statistic, but the coverage of the random telecommunication network is quantified in terms of k-th order U -statistic, for k > 1.
Fine Gaussian fluctuations on the Poisson space II: rescaled kernels, marked processes and geometric U-statistics
The content of this section is inspired by reference , where Decreusefond et al. use concepts from algebraic topology in order to study the asymptotic interactions between devices in a telecommunications network.

In principle, the resulting decrease in bit rate could be compensated for thanks to the achievable GHz modulation rates of telecommunication lasers.

This region is called the second telecommunication window22 .
Quantum Cryptography
Although telecommunication based on optical fibers is very advanced nowadays, such channels may not always be available.
Quantum Cryptography
Photon counting with Germanium APDs, although known for 30 years (Haecker, Groezinger and Pilkuhn 1971), started to be used in the domain of quantum communication with the need of transmitting single photons over long distances using optical fibers, hence with the necessity to work at telecommunications wavelength.
Quantum Cryptography
Motivated by pioneering research reported already in 1985 (Levine, Bethea and Campbell 1985), latest research focusses on InGaAs APDs, allowing single photon detection in both telecommunication windows.
Quantum Cryptography
The first commercial photon counter at telecommunication wavelengths came out only this year (Hamamatsu photomultiplier R5509-72).
Quantum Cryptography
In addition, researchers can benefit from all the tools developed in the past two decades for optical telecommunications.
Quantum Cryptography
At present, good single-photon detectors are not commercially available for telecommunication wavelengths.
Quantum Cryptography
It is interesting to note that, although he used standard telecommunications fibers which can support more than one spatial mode at this wavelength, he was able to ensure single-mode propagation by carefully controlling the launching conditions.
Quantum Cryptography
These components, commercially available, are extremely compact and convenient when using telecommunications wavelengths, which is not true for other wavelengths.
Quantum Cryptography
Modern telecommunication is based on wavelength around 1.3 µm (second telecommunication window) and around 1.5 µm (third telecommunication window).
