Optical Wireless Networks with Adjustable Topologies for Indoor and Outdoor Communications (ISR IP)

ISR intellectual property available to license

Inventor
Christopher Davis, Stuart Milner, Igor Smolyaninov

U.S. Patent: 6,990,350

Description
Innovations in the field of optical technology will continue to offer system designers the opportunity to create new solutions that will further stimulate the evolution of the all-optical telecommunication networks. In the same way that that transistors and integrated circuits transformed the twentieth century into the "electronic century," all-optical components will make the first century of the millennium "the photonic century."

Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed and proved the possibility of controlling light transmission at a single photon level. Their elegant approach, based on a new concept of light-controlled photon tunneling, opens the possibility of processing information via light at a very basic level, "controlling light by light."

This research can be used in a variety of applications for next step applications in "all-optical" technology including quantum computing, all-optical signal processing and control.
