This is the wavelength of light first used in fibre-optic cables to transmit data between sites. The light is typically generated by a Gallium Arsinide semiconductor laser diode, and the this is why a specific wavelength of light is emitted. The first of these semiconductor laser diodes was developed by General Electric research, under a team led by Robert N. Hall in 1962.
