Terahertz wireless

Researchers develop key component for terahertz wireless

Covering all the angles:
Terahertz waves, operating at a much higher frequency than microwaves, could one day be used to carry data many times faster than today’s cellular and Wi-Fi networks. More work needs to be done before terahertz technology is deployed, but a Brown-led research team has made progress on one important part: multiplexing and de-multiplexing a terahertz stream.

Frequencies in the terahertz range could greatly increase the capacity of wireless communications systems. Daniel Mittleman is working to solve technical challenges that would make terahertz improvements possible.

Daniel Mittleman’s main research area can be found somewhere between the infrared and the microwave frequencies on the electromagnetic spectrum. It’s a swath of frequencies known as the terahertz range — an emerging research area.

Professor of Engineering Chris Rose

New Faculty Joins the School of Engineering

As a professor of engineering, Christopher Rose will continue his work in communications theory. As associate dean of the faculty, he will cobble together multidisciplinary faculty, postdoctoral, and graduate student teams by building on what he sees as the unusual technical breadth of underrepresented minorities in STEM disciplines.

Christopher Rose has a rather broad view of his chosen field of communication theory. It’s a cosmic-scale view, one might say.
