Schmidt, Singleton and LightSlinger. Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellows present the lecture series Frontiers in Science with Andrea Schmidt and John Singleton, the duo behind the award-winning LightSlinger, a new antenna that generates radio waves from faster-than-light currents.

As wireless communications technology continues to advance, the need for smaller, more versatile and energy- and cost-efficient antennas is becoming increasingly important. LightSlinger has potential applications for 5G and defense communications.

Frontiers in Science: LightSlinger is a free event. Audiences have two opportunities to catch this special presentation, once in Santa Fe and once Los Alamos. Details below.
