BT trials a new quantum radio to boost next-generation 5G, IoT networks

May 18, 2022


U.K. carrier BT announced a trial of a new hyper-sensitive quantum antenna technology using “excited atomic states”, which could boost the capability of next-generation 5G and IoT networks.

The operator noted that the Atomic Radio Frequency (RF) receiver technology represents a new way of detecting radio waves that could find much weaker signals than conventional receivers. The receiver works by using a quantum effect called “electromagnetically induced transparency” to form a highly sensitive electric field detector.
