With all the changes in cabling, there has been one standard type of cable that has remained unchanged for over 50 years. According to this story on The Inquirer, Coaxial Cable is about to undergo a change.
"BOFFINS THINK THEY have come up with the next generation of coaxial cable which is several times thinner than
the standard we have been tripping over for decades.
According to the journal Applied Physics Letters, which we get for the crossword, boffins from Boston College
have built a new cable which they think will change the face of electronics. The cable is built around a
light-transmitting coaxial cable that contains an inner wire of carbon surrounded by an insulator and an outer
wire of aluminium. It is 300 nanometres wide with the centre wire sticking out at one end to serve as an antenna
for light. "
