Together with Dr. Muriel Medard and other researchers at MIT Lincoln
Laboratory, I have considered the use of nonlinear feedback
functions to design an ultrafast optical feedback shift register sequence
generator that can be used to encrypt large, bursty files for transmission
through optical TDM networks.
