Rogue Fiber Optic Waves, L-Distributions, and the Market

Pardon me geeking out for a moment, but some recent research on rogue waves turns out to have interesting implications in fiber optics. The notion of non-Gaussian "L-distributions" alone is worth the read — with myriad market implications — but the idea that freakish waves 30-times the size of normal pulses can transit fiber optics under the right circumstances is fascinating.
