Detail

This report provides a vision for the future exploitation of the electromagnetic spectrum to ensure increased UK innovation. It identifies 4 areas of electromagnetic technology that offer commercial potential in the future. These areas are:

  • switching to light - all optical data handling
  • manufacturing with light - photonics at the molecular level
  • inside the wavelength - electromagnetics in the near field
  • picturing people - non-intrusive imaging

Further details are available from the electromagnetic spectrum project page.
