    Silicon Multiplexer to Advance THz-Based Communications

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    An ultra-small silicon chip called a multiplexer is poised to increase data processing speeds and the next generation of communications — 6G and beyond — as a result. The chip, developed by researchers from Osaka University and the University of Adelaide, is made from pure silicon and manages terahertz waves in the 300 GHz band.

    According to associate professor Withawat Withayachumnankul from the University of Adelaide, a multiplexer, which is used to split and join signals, is critical for dividing information into manageable chunks that can be more easily processed to speed up transmission from one device to another.

    “Up until now, compact and practical multiplexers have not been developed for the terahertz…
