  1. NIST’s Antenna Evaluation Method Could Help Boost 5G Network Capacity And Cut Costs

    Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a method for evaluating and selecting optimal antenna designs for future fifth-generation (5G) cellphones, other wireless devices and base stations.

  2. Revealing Hidden Information In Sound Waves

    By essentially turning down the pitch of sound waves, University of Michigan engineering researchers have devised a way to unlock greater amounts of data from acoustic fields than ever before.

  3. Millimetre Waves For The Last Mile

    Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a modulator with which data transmitted via millimetre waves can be directly converted into light pulses for optical fibres. This could make covering the “last mile” up to the internet socket at home considerably faster and cheaper.
