2020 IEEE Summer Topical Meeting Series

July 13th - 15th 2020

 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico Virtual Conference

Structure Light Interaction with Matter and the Environment (SL) & Space Division Multiplexing (SDM)

The IEEE Summer Topical Meeting Series serves as an international forum to facilitate information exchange between various technical communities using or affected by rapidly growing areas of technology or “Hot Topics” related to the general field of Photonics. This intimate environment provides the opportunity to learn about emerging fields and to interact with the research and technology leaders. Historically, the conference hosts 4-7 individual topics and attracts 250+ people with 30-50 participants attending each topic. The smaller meeting size provides the flexibility to pilot new and unique ideas.

Highlights

A microwave spatial modulator to improve in-home WiFi

 

[N. Kaina et al., Sci. Rep. (2014)]

Wavefront shaping is not limited to optical waves. Similar techniques can be used for any kind of wave for which one can control dynamically the phase over a large number of independent elements. In [N. Kaina et al., Sci. Rep. (2014)], the authors demonstrate the use of their Spatial Microwave Modulator (SMM) to control the propagation of radiofrequency waves inside a room to improve the WiFi signal at any chosen position. The system is passive as there is no energy transfer from the modulator to the WiFi signal, it only controls the local phase of the waves reflected off the modulator. The device is thin and has the typical size of a small poster, it can be conveniently placed on the wall of a typical room without any loss of space.
