Higher terahertz frequencies are usable for data transmission which will boost data 100 times over microwaves

An off-the-wall new study by Brown University researchers shows that terahertz frequency data links can bounce around a room without dropping too much data. The results are good news for the feasibility of future terahertz wireless data networks, which have the potential to carry many times more data than current networks. Today’s cellular networks and …
