SYMPOSIUM 12: 5G Materials for the Millimeter Wave Revolution



Right now, there is a worldwide race to implement millimeter-wave (mmWave) technologies for 5th Generation (5G) communication systems and win a piece of the $5.6T telecommunications pie. New technologies spanning the space between analog and digital electronics require innovations in material science and measurement to facilitate commerce in the mmWave regime. Novel materials can help manufacturers tackle the 5G challenges by accessing fundamental physics including phase transitions, controlling loss, and enhancing transport. In this symposium, we kickoff a discussion between worldwide experts from academia, government labs, and industry to identify how ceramics can help. Presentations and discussions are expected to address technical challenges and insights across a wide range of topics, ranging from materials-by-design to proof-of-concept device development all of which are relevant to a diverse application space. The broader impacts of this symposium will facilitate innovations in mmWave technology.


Proposed Sessions

  • The millimeter-wave race: industry
  • Materials-by-design for telecommunications applications
  • 5G materials synthesis
  • Metrology and characterization of materials
  • Microwave and millimeter-wave devices
