Global Technology – November 2014

Building on previous research that twisted light in order to send data at unheard-of speeds, scientists at USC have used a similar technique with radio waves to reach super-high speeds without the hassles that can go with optical systems.

The research, described in Nature Communications, achieved data transmission rates of 32 gigabits per second across 2.5 meters of free space in a basement lab at USC. For reference, 32 gigabits per second is fast enough to transmit more than 10 hour-and-a-half-long HD movies in one second, an.....
