Google’s Balloon Internet is Coming to Kenya in 2019

It may be hard to imagine a modern day without the internet, but billions of people around the world still lack connectivity. Sure, the internet has its dregs, trolls and garbage content strewn across the web, but it also offers access to more information than all the world’s libraries. In order to bring the internet […]

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. […]

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 […]

Tunable third harmonic generation in graphene paves the way to high-speed optical communications and signal processing

Graphene Flagship researchers have shown for the first time gate tunable third harmonic generation in graphene. This research, led by Graphene Flagship Partner University of Cambridge, in Collaboration with Politecnico di Milano and IIT-Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova and published in Nature Nanotechnology, could enable on-chip broadband optical switches for data transport in optical systems.

Fancy charging up your electric car in 10 minutes?

Imagine being able to charge your electric car in minutes rather than hours, or your smartphone in seconds. That’s the enticing prospect being touted by researchers who reckon they’ve discovered a new material that could boost the performance of a carbon-based supercapacitor – sometimes called an ultracapacitor – a type of energy storage device that […]

How to Get Wyoming Wind to California, and Cut 80% of U.S. Carbon Emissions

High-voltage direct-current transmission lines hold the key to slashing greenhouse gases. everal miles south of Rawlins, Wyoming, on a cattle ranch east of the Continental Divide, construction crews have begun laying down roads and pads that could eventually underpin up to 1,000 wind turbines. Once complete, the Chokecherry and Sierra Madre project could generate around 12 […]

Widespread Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure Goal

As hydrogen fuel cell vehicles continue to roll out in increasing numbers, the infrastructure for fueling them must expand as well. To this end, a new project launched by the Energy Department and led by Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory(NREL) will work in support of H2USA, the public private partnership introduced in 2013 by the […]
