Fraunhofer HHI presents the latest Li-Fi research at the first Global LiFi Congress in Paris

07.02.2018

This year scientists and industry interested in Li-Fi will meet for the first time under the auspices of the Global LiFi Congress in Paris on February 8-9. They will be sharing their ideas with one another and opening the door for Li-Fi technology to move forward from research to application. Fraunhofer HHI will be present at the Congress with its own stand (No. 17), three talks, a poster presentation and a panel to showcase the latest findings in a variety of application areas.

Fraunhofer HHI scientists will present their latest research results at the Global LiFi Congress from three pilot installations in a variety of application areas: Industrial Manufacturing, Conference Room and Backhaul for Mobile Communications Antennas.

They will also be reporting on the current status of Li-Fi standardization. At the Fraunhofer HHI's Stand 17, interested visitors will be able to see the latest Li-Fi modules, featuring among other things multi-user access, reduced energy consumption and smaller form factor.

Li-Fi, also referred to as Visible Light Communication (VLC), is an alternative to conventional Wi-Fi technologies.

VLC data transmission is also wireless, but uses modulated light produced e.g. by LED lighting sources instead of radio waves. Among the advantages of VLC are the robustness against radio waves and electromagnetic fields.

Li-Fi also provides additional spectrum for crowded radio networks and is less susceptible to interference.

The Global LiFi Congress provides an overview on the topical areas of Li-Fi and demonstrates the sector's challenges and developments.

Academic conferences and round-table discussions will give representatives from science and business the chance to share their visions with regard to Li-Fi innovations and applications.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
