A breakthrough enabling very fast tunable delay lines on chip should facilitate bandwidth affecting the 10 billion mobile devices connected to the wireless network. The ability to provide broader bandwidth instantaneously to more users in the future will be part of the solution to the bottleneck faced by wireless networks worldwide, with applications ranging from more efficient radars to detect attacks, to the ‘internet of things’, fifth generation (5G) communications, and smart homes and cities.
