Graphene Filter Could Make Wireless Data Transmission 10 Times Faster

Researchers at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the University of Geneva in Switzerland have developed a graphene filter for microchips that could potentially lead to wireless transmission rates 10 times as fast what chips deliver today.

In research described in the journal Nature Communications, the Swiss researchers actually fabricated what is known as a non-reciprocal isolator. The isolator filters backward radiation, preventing waves from being reflected back towards their source. [Read More…]
