Graphene Antenna Wireless Transfers One Terabit Of Data Per Second
Mar 06, 2013 12:28
Graphene, the magical material sauce is going to do a lot of wonderful things. One of them, is make an antenna that would let you transfer a whole terabit of data in one second.
That's what the researchers at Georgia Tech University are doing. They were successful within a couple of feet, but in theory from a closer range you could move as much as 100 terabits a second.
MIT Technology Review explains how the antenna would be made:
Graphene could be shaped into narrow strips of between 10 and 100 nanometers wide and one micrometer long, allowing it to transmit and receive at the terahertz frequency, which roughly corresponds to those size scales. Electromagnetic waves in the terahertz frequency would then interact with plasmonic waves-oscillations of electrons at the surface of the graphene strip-to send and receive information.
Apple's security is getting more lax these days, and 9to5Mac have gotten their hands on some leaked images of the iPhone 6S. It looks a lot like its predecessor, and according to user Mark Gurman, the major design changes will be internal. Read more
It looks like Google has a lot to answer for after its facial recognition software thought these two black people were gorillas. Some engineer is going to get it because the image recognition algorithm somehow couldn't differentiate human and animal. Read more
Whatever line of business you are in, there is always a chance that things can go wrong. Whether it’s a natural disaster or a customer service mixup, without the right preparation and protection in place, it could be disastrous. Of course, where there are problems, there will also be technology built to try and solve them. Read more
