Metamaterial clears radiation

 

A "metamaterial" that filters terahertz radiation could open up new spectrums for wireless communication.

 

According to New Scientist, The new apparatus, developed by researchers at the University of Utah have worked out a way of using terahertz waves for communications.

The device is a sheet of metal foil using a carefully designed pattern of holes that interacts with electromagnetic waves in novel ways, thanks to

sub-wavelength structural features.

The filter is a first step towards developing a terahertz communications system. If the system is developed it will only work over relatively short distances, like a computer network, as the waves are absorbed by moisture in the atmosphere over longer distances.

They believe that it will be five years before any complete system can be developed.
