During the past few months, there has been a flurry of related news in material science which could have an impact on the development of 6G wireless communications. This article brings together a variety of what may well turn out to be complementary discoveries supporting widespread communications over high-frequency spectrum.
Starting with antennas, a Chinese team published their work developing a metasurface capable of creating a highly directional beam at high frequencies, while simultaneously self-filtering to reduce sideband interference. The work was led by Professor Chan Chi-hou, Acting Provost and Chair Professor of Electronic Engineering in the Department of Electrical Engineering at City University of Hong Kong (CityU).
