iiii writes: University of Delaware prof Dennis Prather, author of many highly cited papers, recently published in Nature Photonics (abstract, full article paywalled) about new techniques that enable communications in the relatively untapped 30-100Ghz spectrum. “The ability to harness the capacity of a spectrum at higher frequencies is huge – no one is saying ‘give me a slower network.’ We’re the first to do it at this frequency, with this kind of fidelity, in this particular way,” said Prather, who is working to patent the concept. Prather has received $1.6 million in new funding to take the technology to the nanoscale.
