Silicon-based metamaterials could bring photonic circuits

New transparent metamaterials under development could make possible computer chips and interconnecting circuits that use light instead of electrons to process and transmit data, representing a potential leap in performance.

Progress made in developing systems for disaster mitigation

When disaster strikes, an effective response system will tell emergency workers where to go, and enable them to get there unimpeded. Residents will receive information they need in order to protect themselves. Moreover, if ...

New record in quantum communications

(Phys.org)—Researchers from The Australian National University have taken a quantum leap towards developing the next-generation super-fast networks needed to drive future computing.

Darpa to develop mobile millimeter-wave backhaul networks

Providing high-bandwidth communications for troops in remote forward operating locations is not only critical but also challenging because a reliable infrastructure optimized for remote geographic areas does not exist. When ...

First 'white space' devices about to debut

(PhysOrg.com) -- Google, and eight other already approved companies are likely to soon be joined by Microsoft as they all take a giant leap into the great "white space" unknown. Because bandwidth for computing devices has ...
