  The next iPhone X might finally do something no iPhone has ever done before Every new iPhone brings over various features that were never available on previous models, and the same is expected for next year’s models. We could tell you that much even if there were no early rumors to dissect. But one of the iPhone X’s successors will finally do something no other iPhone has been capable of, even though competing devices had the beloved and incredibly useful feature for years. That’s right, dual-SIM support is supposedly coming to a future iPhone.

The Perovskite mineral could transform the tech industry.

A rare mineral discovered in Russia in the 1830′s could hold the key to boosting internet speeds 1,000 times faster than today. The mineral, perovskite, has a number of incredible properties, many of which scientists are now realizing.

Perovskite (CaTiO3) is a calcium titanium oxide mineral, but the magic lies in this minerals ability to house many different cations in its physical structure, giving engineers the ability to modify the mineral as they see fit. While scientists have known about the mineral for quite some time, originally discovered in the Ural Mountains in Russia in 1839, researchers continue to find useful characteristics of this mineral.

A “ miracle material” found deep within the Earth’s mantle could hold the key to ultra-high-speed communications and computing, researchers say. Scientists from the University of Utah discovered that a type of perovskite—a mineral first discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia in 1839— could

Perovskite is found in Earth’s mantle has been mined in Arkansas, the Urals, Switzerland, Sweden, and Germany. Each variety has a slightly different chemical makeup, allowing for different physical characteristics. One such useful characteristic discovered in 2009 is perovskite’s ability to absorb sunlight and generate electricity, a natural form of a photovoltaic cell (solar cell). The mineral is currently under development for use in solar cells, displays, and catalytic converters.

Next Generation Terahertz Data Transfer

Now, scientists have discovered the mineral’s ability to use the terahertz spectrum in transferring data. The specific type of perovskite used is both inorganic and organic and can be thinly layered on a silicon wafer. The system’s unique ability is that it uses light instead of electricity to transfer data, allowing transfer speeds 1,000 times faster than current technology.

The terahertz band lies in between infrared light and radio frequency (100 to 10,000 gigahertz). This compares to the 2.4 gigahertz range most cellphones use today. The layered perovskite mineral can transfer data through light waves in the terahertz band using a simple halogen lamp. Using a halogen lamp, the research team found that they can modify the terahertz waves as they pass through the perovskite. This allowed the research team to encode data in the waves and transfer data 1,000 times faster than traditional electronic data transfers.

This research builds on the previous discovery of modulating waves in perovskite. However, that required expensive and high-powered lasers which made it commercially too expensive. The new discovery utilizes simple inexpensive halogen bulbs. In addition, the team found that they can specify the color of the light to modulate data simultaneously on different frequencies. Hence, not only can they transfer data 1,000 times faster using terahertz waves, they can simultaneously activate multiple data transfers using different colored lamps.

This technological breakthrough opens the door to using terahertz data transfer in future generation computing and communication. At a thousand times faster, this inexpensive and simple way to transfer data presents a multitude of opportunities to transform our digital lives. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait at least 10 years until it becomes commercially ready according to the authors. When that time comes, this could present a step change in computing and communication.
