Breakthrough! Ultra-fast data transfer via sound and light.
What distinguishes terahertz quantum cascade lasers from other lasers is the fact that they emit light in the terahertz range of the electromagnetic spectrum. They have applications in the field of spectroscopy where they are used in chemical analysis.
Recently, researchers have made a breakthrough in the control of terahertz quantum cascade lasers, which could lead to the transmission of data at the rate of 100 gigabits per second -- around one thousand times quicker than a fast Ethernet operating at 100 megabits a second.
This discovery opens a new area for the research of physics and computer applications, which are also within the scope of the journal Probe - Computer Science & Information Technology.
It is an international peer-reviewed journal, serves as a forum for scientists and engineers involved in all aspects of computer science and information technology to publish high quality and refereed papers. The journal also seeks clearly written survey and review articles from experts in the field, to promote insightful understanding of the state-of-the-art and technology trends.
Papers reporting original research and innovative applications from all parts of the world are welcome. Papers for publication in the journal are selected through rigorous peer review, to ensure originality, timeliness, relevance, and readability.
