Infinite Radio

Vortex radio waves could boost wireless capacity “infinitely”

It is hard to put into words just how significant Thide’s discovery could be. If the vortex preserves other aspects of wireless communications, such as multiplexing, then in the short term we could be looking at a wireless spectrum that can carry 10 or 20 times as much data. In the long term, as our understanding of orbital angular momentum grows, our wireless spectrum could effectively be infinite. To be honest, this is such a huge twist for wireless communications that the full repercussions are not yet known.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Now I wonder about the orbital angular momentum of other waves and particles.

Now I also wonder if scarcity is only a consequence of human ignorance and not the default of the Universe.

  1. Scarcity is most likely a creation of commerce. We just buy it.
