Lights could be the future of the internet and data transmission

Posted by in categories: computing, internet

Fast data transmissions could be delivered in homes and offices through light-emitting diodes (LED) bulbs, complementing existing communication technologies and networks.

The future’s new internet technologies are being rapidly refined by academics and LED-based communication links are expected to be extensively used in numerous emerging services and scenarios, including Light-fidelity (Li-Fi), underwater communications, moderate-to high-speed photonic interconnects and various “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices.

A new study, published in Nature Photonics and led by the University of Surrey and University of Cambridge, has investigated how to release high-speed photonic sources using . These are semiconductors being researched with LEDs for their excellent optoelectronic properties and low-cost processing methods.
