Full duplex transceiver could cut spectrum congestion
21.05.2015 - 19:25
The University of Bristol says a team from its Communication Systems and Networks research group has developed a technique that can estimate and cancel out the interference from one's own transmission. This would allow a radio to transmit and receive on the same channel at the same time and therefore use only half the spectrum needed by curr...
Graphene and hBN combine to control light
21.05.2015 - 19:22
Researchers at MIT, working with colleagues from IBM's TJ Watson Research Center, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the University of Minnesota, have coupled the properties of different two dimensional materials in a way which is said to provide an exceptional degree of control over light waves. The team says this could lead to new kinds ...
