Reliable energy for all

Graduate student Prosper Nyovanie wants to power off-grid communities worldwide with scalable solar electric systems. Fatima Husain | MIT News correspondent During high school, Prosper Nyovanie had to alter his daily and nightly schedules to accommodate the frequent power outages that swept cities across Zimbabwe. “[Power] would go almost every day — it was almost […]

Blasting tiny craters in glass, creating material to miniaturize telecommunication devices: An ultrafast laser-blasted glass doped with rare earth erbium ions to produce a material used in integrated optical circuits

Modern communication systems often employ optical fibers to carry signals across or between devices. The integrated optics in these devices combine more than one function into a single circuit. However, signal transmission requires long optical fibers, which makes it difficult to miniaturize the device. Instead of long optical fibers, scientists have started testing planar waveguides. […]

Muriel Médard on the world-altering rise of 5G

“The reason 5G is so different is that what exactly it will look like is still up in the air. Everyone agrees the phrase is a bit of a catch-all.” Meg Murphy | School of Engineering | MIT The rise of 5G, or fifth generation, mobile technologies is refashioning the wireless communications and networking industry. […]

Should LTE provide 5 Mbps speeds, 10 Mbps or something else?

The FCC is opening a new proceeding to investigate the state of telecommunications in America, and as part of that effort the agency will seek comment on how mobile networks should perform across the country. Specifically, the FCC will investigate whether wireless carriers should provide 5 Mbps downloads/1 Mbps uploads, 10 Mbps downloads/3 Mbps uploads, […]

It’s Never Too Early To Think About 6G

Companies have barely begun deploying 5G networks, but that just means researchers are thinking about what comes next? The first thought that popped into your head as soon as you read this article’s headline was likely something along the lines of “Wait, I thought we were still waiting on 5G.” And that’s true: This is […]
