S6. Electronics materials for 5G telecommunications applications

Currently, there is a worldwide race to implement millimeter-wave (mmWave) technologies for fifth generation (5G) communication systems and win a piece of the $5.6T telecommunications gross revenue. 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, loss control, transport enhancement, and physical models. In this symposium, we initiate a discussion among worldwide experts to identify how ceramics can help. Presentations and discussions are expected to address technical challenges and insights across a wide  range of topics, including materials-by-design and proof-of-concept device development relevant to a diverse application space. The broader impacts of this symposium will facilitate innovations in mmWave technology.


Proposed session topics

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