As per data obtained from the United Nations’ telecommunications agency, 93% of the world’s population has access to a mobile-broadband network of some type. Since data has turned easily available to consumers, there is also a craving to get more of it with higher speeds.
Although smartphone screens are now larger, practically every other component is engineered to be thinner, flatter, and smaller than ever before.
Nokia, Ericsson, II-VI, Lumentum and Sumitomo Electric have today published a joint technical paper making the case for reducing the wide choice of Mobile Optical Pluggables (MOPA) used to connect cell sites to fiber networks.
X-ray inspection specialist, SEC Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has succeeded in developing automatic 3D CT systems for the inspection of batteries for electric vehicles and mobile phones.
Metalenz Inc., the pioneer in metasurface design and commercialization, today unveiled the Orion™ product family, the world’s simplest, high performance dot projectors.
Japanese researchers successfully tested reflectionless, highly refractive index metasurface that may eventually be used in practical applications to send, receive, and manipulate light and radio waves in the terahertz waveband (THz).
Light waves largely govern the sustained growth of cellular and wireless data traffic. Microwave photonics can be defined as the field of technology that is devoted to the processing and distribution of electrical data signals through optical ways.
Nokia today announced it has been selected by Swisscom to transform the operator’s existing infrastructure to a fully automated and high capacity optical transport network.
The field of photonics aims to transform all manner of electronic devices by storing and transmitting information in the form of light, rather than electricity.
A new multiplexer has now been created from pure silicon for terahertz-range communications in the 300-GHz band. The feat was achieved by a collaboration of scientists from Osaka University, Japan, and the University of Adelaide, Australia.
