New lab of TU Eindhoven will work on wifi with 1Tbit / s




The TU / e has opened a research lab, where researchers will include work on wifi which should offer speeds of 1Tbit / s. The lab will work on small sensors, which should draw their power wireless signals.

The goal is to get the Wi-Fi standard that signals 1Tbit / s can pass in 2020 to have developed, writes the TU / e. Currently, the fastest Wi-Fi standard 802.11ac, which can reach speeds of up to 1,3Gbit / s. The new standard has to offer speeds that are 750 times higher.

Also open new research lab will work on wireless sensors that do not need electricity, but can charge via radio waves. Therefor which sensors have to work efficient, because the amount of current devices can get out of radio signals is limited. The third research field terahertz technology, devices that work with a trillion cycles per second for medical technology and weapon detection.

The TU / e protects the lab with windows that let light but block electromagnetic radiation. Also, the temperature in the lab must always be constant, while there is substantially no static electricity needs to be. This should provide reliable measurements.
