Drones for early detection of forest fires

The UC3M's researchers coordinating the scientific part of the project, Fernando GarcĂ­a y Abdulla al-Kaff, from the Department of Systems Engineering and Automation, have developed the complete automatic flight system, as ...

Entangling photons of different colors

Some of the most advanced communication systems now under development rely on the properties of quantum science to store and transport information. However, researchers designing quantum communication systems that rely on ...

HD video from the moon in near real time

A new optical modem, capable of sending high-definition quality video significantly faster than standard radio frequency systems, is being developed for NASA's Orion spacecraft. The hardware, offered by LGS Innovations, is ...

High-speed communication systems based on ultraviolet radiation

Military and civil authorities could benefit from secure optical communication systems that use light to carry messages between moving vehicles. Researchers at KAUST have now demonstrated rapid data transfer using ultraviolet-B ...

Light to break bandwidth ceiling

The rise of big data and advances in information technology has serious implications for our ability to deliver sufficient bandwidth to meet the growing demand.

Ultracompact photodetector for optical data transmission

Data traffic is growing worldwide. Glass-fiber cables transmit information over long distances at the speed of light. Once they have reached their destination, however, these optical signals have to be converted into electrical ...
