The remarkable communications advances we’ll see during the coming year rely on electromagnetic energy in the RV, microwave, mm-wave, and terahertz bands.

This year’s IMS in Philadelphia will feature state-of-the-art research and the largest industrial exposition in the field. It’s going to be an amazing year.
