Corkscrewing Lasers Could Be the Key to Unlimited Bandwidth

Conventional data transmission techniques rely on two-dimensional signals to carry the information down a pipeline, but there's only so much potential bandwidth to go around. There are only so many signals you can pack into a given plane before they begin to overlap and interfere with another. But if we were to add an… » 9/25/13 6:00pm 9/25/13 6:00pm

RF Cochlea Is a Super-Powered Signal Processor Modeled After the Inner…

RF signal processors are pretty commonplace in consumer electronics. Which is exactly why it's exciting that two MIT researchers have created a super-radio based around the function of the human ear that's substantially faster and 100x more power efficient than today's signal processors. » 6/17/09 1:00am 6/17/09 1:00am
