  • Braunschweig Team Receives Patent Award

Photonics Spectra
Apr 2009
A team of inventors from Technische Universität Braunschweig in Germany, led by Dr. Martin Koch and co-inventor Steffen Wietzke, has received first place in the IPB Patent Awards competition for frequency-selective, flexible, inexpensive terahertz mirrors made of plastic materials. The innovation could provide the key components in wireless indoor communications systems. The scientists are working to open up the gap in the electromagnetic spectrum for short-range communications technology. They were presented €25,000 (about $31,840).

electromagnetic spectrum
The total range of wavelengths, extending from the shortest to the longest wavelength or conversely, that can be generated physically. This range of electromagnetic wavelengths extends practically from zero to infinity and includes the visible portion of the spectrum known as light.
