AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Terahertz-band communication networks, Internet of Nano-Things, brain-computer interfaces

Josep Jornet can speak to the media about the part of the electromagnetic spectrum known as the terahertz band.

He is developing extremely small radios — which take advantage of terahertz waves — to improve wireless communication. The technology could eliminate wireless traffic jams and reduce the time it takes to complete complex tasks, such as migrating the files of one computer to another, from hours to seconds.

Ultimately, the work could lead to the so-called Internet of Nano-Things, in which tiny everyday objects are connected to the cloud via sensors, microprocessors and other technology. Such devices could include nano-sized biosensors and actuators with medical and health care applications. Jornet also conducts research on how laser-powered brain implants might be used to treat schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and other aging-related disorders.
