However the current systems, such as WLAN or Bluetooth have their limits: They transmit the data with clock rates of some gigahertz, maximum (a billion vibrations per second).
If one wants to increase the transmitted data quantity, then the clock rates must become still faster. Thus the range of the terahertz waves (1000 billion vibrations per second) has moved into focus - at least for short ranges, as for example, within rooms. However, thus far it has been extremely difficult here to produce and transmit enough transmitting power. That could change now.
Engineers and physicists of the Terahertz Communications Lab in Braunschweig, a cooperation of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the Technische Universität Braunschweig, have now - worldwide for the first time - successfully transmitted a video signal at a frequency of 300 GHz, over a distance of more than 22 meters, and have thus demonstrated that the transmission of user data is possible with terahertz waves.

On January 15, 2009, Chesley B. Sullenberger was celebrated world-wide: after the two engines had failed due to bird strike, he and his flight crew succeeded after a glide flight with an Airbus A320 in ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on board were saved.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
