Wireless Optical Communication Using Silicon-on-Insulator Technology

Free registration required

Executive Summary

As the data rates are increasing, there is an increasing mismatch between wired and wireless communications. While optical fiber communication easily allows Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) communication, the present mainstream wireless communication, based on a RadioFrequency (RF) carrier at 2.45GHz does only offer several tens up to hundreds Mbps due to the limited bandwidth available and interference of other users. At RF side, one is therefore looking at the 60GHz band for short range communication since there is an unlicensed band of 5-7GHz around 60GHz available worldwide.
