Researchers have developed a novel monolayer molybdenum disulfide switch for 6G communication applications, a semiconductor device that has attracted considerable attention, making it possible to process digital signals significantly faster and very energy-efficient.
To better support wireless communications, such as autonomous driving and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) using 6G (sixth generation wireless communication technology), the power consumption of communication devices must be reduced. The research team noted that conventional analog and radio frequency (RF) switches based on solid-state diode or transistor devices are unstable and consume energy during switching events, as well as in a standby or idle on and off states.
Using THz photonics devices, several modulations were tested to evaluate the response of the molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) device toward the IEEE 802.15.3d standard. Since 6G communication technologies can be integrated with many application scenarios, they must be versatile.
In this study, the team reports on the application of nanoscale nonvolatile analog switches based on monolayer MoS2 for 6G data communications.
