Enhanced Ceramics Could Play Pivotal Role in Advancing 5G Technology

Michael Hill, technical director of Skyworks Solutions, and his colleagues provide an overview in Applied Physics Letters on nascent 5G technologies and show how enhancing ceramic materials could play a pivotal role in development. They have developed a ceramic called a circulator, a three-port device that serves as a traffic circle to keep the signal flowing in one direction and enable a receiver and a transmitter to share the same antenna.

5G Wireless May Lead to Inaccurate Weather Forecasts

Upcoming 5G wireless networks that will provide faster cell phone service may lead to inaccurate weather forecasts, according to a Rutgers study on a controversial issue that has created anxiety among meteorologists.
