Researchers have unveiled a method for wireless data transmission at a world record of 100 Gbit/s, Nature Photonics Magazine reported. In the experiment, 100 gigabits of data per second were transmitted at a frequency of 237.5 GHz over a distance of 20 m in the laboratory. In previous field experiments under the "Millilink" project funded by the BMBF, rates of 40 gigabits per second and transmission distances of more than 1 km were reached. For their latest world record, the scientists applied a photonic method to generate the radio signals at the transmitter. After radio transmission, fully integrated electronic circuits were used in the receiver. The "Millilink" project (March 2010 to May 2013) was funded with a total budget of EUR 2 million by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under the programme "Broadband Access Networks of the Next Generation". Apart from the research institutions of Fraunhofer IAF and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), industry partners Siemens, Kathrein, and Radiometer Physics participated in the project, which focused on integrating wireless or radio links into broadband optical communication networks for rapid internet access in rural areas in particular. Other possible applications are indoor wireless local area networks (WLAN), wireless personal area networks (WPAN), and intra-machine and board-to-board communication.
