VISIBLE LIGHT COMMUNICATION (VLC)

has been used to reach  data rates  up to 10 Gb/s (roughly correlating to 40,000 channels recorded at  a sampling rate of 20 KS/s at  12-bit resolution), in fields outside of neuroscience.  A single small LED light source using  limited amount of power, transmitting to a set of photodetectors is enough to achieve data rates magnitudes higher than possible with current RF based devices available on the market.  Our core purpose is to exploit the potential for these high data rates  and translate it into a neuroscience research context. By doing so we aim to maximize neural data recording while also  minimizing interference and discomfort for animals.
