Well, light is light. Propagation velocities of EM radiation is roughly the same in the same medium (notice that light could slow down to a few cm/s in Bose-Einstein condensate). Is the source of chromatic aberration slightly different propagation velocity of light? I would think so.

Look into violet GaN (gallium nitride) lasers and optically switched networks. It seems that GBit networking might be superseded by TBit networking within the next decade.
