Wi-Fi Light Sabre: 100 Times Faster, Never Overloaded

Wi-Fi on light ray smokes...
Wi-Fi on light ray smokes...

RESEARCHERS at Eindhoven University have achieved a speed of 42.8 Gbit/s with a ray of light in an optical wireless network

The capacity the harmless Wi-Fi light rays is not only huge (more than 40Gbit/s per ray) but also there is no need to share it since every device gets its own ray of light. The system conceived in Eindhoven is simple and affordable. Wireless data comes from a few central light antennas, for instance mounted on the ceiling, which precisely direct the rays of light supplied by an optical fibre. 

Since there are no moving parts, this solution is maintenance-free and needs no power: the antennas contain a pair of gratings that radiate light rays of different wavelengths at different angles called passive diffraction gratings. Changing the light wavelengths also changes the direction of the ray of light. Since a safe infrared wavelength is used that does not reach the vulnerable retina in your eye, this technique is harmless.
