  1. Indian Scientists Devise Wearable Antenna On Polyester For WiMAX

    Researchers in India have fabricated a new type of wearable antenna on polyester fabric that can be worn by military personnel to monitor their health status.

  2. Mathematicians From RUDN University Have Modeled 5G Mobile Communication Of The Future

    Scientists from RUDN University have created a mathematical model of reliable microwave communication for mobile phones and other devices.

  3. Georgia Tech Researchers Support DARPA’s New ‘CHIPS’ Initiative

    A team of Georgia Tech researchers is bringing electronic design software and communications expertise to DARPA's new CHIPS initiative, which will enable future generations of integrated circuits to be assembled from plug-and-play modules known as “chiplets.” Reusing blocks of existing microelectronics technology could reduce the need to design complex monolithic chips from scratch for new applications.

  4. New Antenna In Alaska Expands Spacecraft Communications Capabilities

    NASA’s newest communications antenna became operational today following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Alaska Satellite Facility in Fairbanks. The antenna will increase the agency’s communications support to Earth-observing missions.

  5. Arecibo Observatory ‘Still Standing’ After Hurricane Maria, But Future Remains Clouded

    Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 storm (on landfall) that was the strongest to hit Puerto Rico in 90 years, inflicted less damage to Arecibo Observatory than earlier reported. Repair costs, however, are expected to complicate the radio telescope's already precarious source of funding, raising further doubt about the future of the historic facility.

  6. Researchers Invent Breakthrough Millimeter-Wave Circulator IC

    Columbia Engineering researchers, led by Harish Krishnaswamy, associate professor of electrical engineering, in collaboration with Professor Andrea Alu’s group from UT-Austin, continue to break new ground in developing magnet-free non-reciprocal components in modern semiconductor processes.

  7. U.S. Air Force Introduces 'Revolutionary' Ultra-Compact Antennas

    By coupling the acoustic resonance of a small antenna with the electromagnetic wave, researchers at the Air Force Research Laboratory Materials and Manufacturing Directorate have succeeded in scaling antenna sizes down to 90 percent smaller than state-of-the art compact antennas. 

  8. Ohio State Researchers Design 'Hovering' Millimeter Wave Antennas

    Researchers at Ohio State University’s ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) are designing "hovering" or suspended high-gain millimeter-wave antenna arrays that boost wireless signals and alleviate the crowded electromagnetic frequency spectrum.
