Northwestern’s 3D printer auto generates designs for future Wi-Fi

How can 3D printing give you faster internet ? Form-fitting health trackers for sneakers? Or even an invisibility cloak ? Scientists in photonics (the study of light) have been working on projects touching these ideas for some time. At the base level, such products rely on the manipulation of light, through waveguides designed to channel/block specific wavelengths. The challenge is, how do you design a guide for light that is typically invisible to the human eye? New light-bending research described by a team at Northwestern University (NU), Illinois, may have the answer. Based on the principle of inverse design […]
