New Frontiers of Cognitive Networking

Monday, September 21, 2015

Most of us use many devices — perhaps too many — throughout the day: A smartphone at home and then at the cafe around the corner, a laptop computer at work and maybe a tablet or e-reader in the evening. That's not counting all of the other possible "smart" devices at our fingertips, such as health monitors, fitness trackers and smart watches.

Terahertz breakthrough allows for ultrafast wireless communications

Monday, September 21, 2015

By Calum Williams 

A collaboration between US and Japanese researchers, have developed a key component in order to enable wireless communications which operate up to 100x faster than current generation routers. Current wireless communications operate at microwave frequencies, however as the demand for faster speeds and larger bandwidths increases, scientists are looking for ways to alleviate the communication bottleneck. Between the microwave and infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum lies an appealing candidate: Terahertz (THz) radiation.
