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: Revealing the secret of the vacuum for the first time

New research group at the University of Jena combines theory and experiment to demonstrate for the first time certain physical processes in a quantum vacuum

For most people, a vacuum is an empty space. Quantum physics, on the other hand, assumes that even in this lowest-energy state, particles and antiparticles...

New concept for energy-efficient data processing technology

Scientists of the Department of Physics at the University of Hamburg, Germany, detected the magnetic states of atoms on a surface using only heat. The...

Im Focus: The moiré patterns of three layers change the electronic properties of graphene

Combining an atomically thin graphene and a boron nitride layer at a slightly rotated angle changes their electrical properties. Physicists at the University of Basel have now shown for the first time the combination with a third layer can result in new material properties also in a three-layer sandwich of carbon and boron nitride. This significantly increases the number of potential synthetic materials, report the researchers in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Last year, researchers in the US caused a big stir when they showed that rotating two stacked graphene layers by a “magical” angle of 1.1 degrees turns...
