Interplanetary Broadband

Abstract:
Now a nanotechnology-based device ... combines efficiency and speed, promising to make such interplanetary communication more practical. The detector might also allow long-distance, secure communications, perhaps for collecting data from unmanned military aerial vehicles such as the Predator. "The detection of extraordinarily low levels of light with high bandwidth has been a challenge for many years," says Karl Berggren, an electrical engineering professor at MIT who helped develop the new device. "This demonstration illustrates what nanotechnology, and in particular nanofabrication, can do when applied to a problem like this."
