The University of Notre Dame-led SpectrumX project is bringing together experts from 29 organizations to transform the landscape of spectrum research, education, collaboration and management.
A pioneering centre is being launched to take mobile technology to the next level and put the UK at the global forefront of 6G research, innovation, and education.
Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology’s ATHENA lab discuss an innovative way to tap into the over-capacity of 5G networks, turning them into “a wireless power grid” for powering Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The breakthrough leverages a Rotman lens-based rectifying antenna capable of millimeter-wave harvesting at 28 GHz.
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.
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.
Amid pressure by the United States, the coronavirus pandemic, and China’s crackdown on Hong Kong, the United Kingdom has banned Huawei equipment from its 5G networks.
Justin Metcalf, assistant professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Gallogly College of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma, has received a Young Faculty Award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
