Neutrino technology is a new communication technology discovered by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University. Researchers got succeed to send message through 240 meters thick stone (780 feet) using a beam of neutrinos for the very first time in the world.
Now any message can be send directly throughout the Earth or another planet with the help of this new communication technology. This technology made possible to keep communicate between any two points on earth without having to use satellites or cables.in submarine in deep in the ocean.
Neutrinos, the exotic fundamental particles are nearly zero mass and neutral charge. It travels approximate to the speed of light. They slightly interact with matter due to gravity. Neutrino particle can pass through substances, including entire planets, without stopping, slowing down or being misdirected.
The equipment used to send neutrino messages is still to much expensive.
“Using neutrinos, it would be possible to communicate between any two points on Earth without using satellites or cables,” said Dan Stancil, professor of electrical and computer engineering at North Carolina State University and the lead author of a paper describing the research, in a press release. “Neutrino communication systems would be much more complicated than today’s systems, but may have important strategic uses,” Mr. Stancil argued.
“Of course, our current technology takes massive amounts of high-tech equipment to communicate a message using neutrinos, so this isn’t practical now,” said Kevin McFarland, a University of Rochester physics professor who was involved in the experiment, in a press release. “But the first step toward someday using neutrinos for communication in a practical application is a demonstration using today’s technology,” Mr. McFarland added.
“Neutrinos have been an amazing tool to help us learn about the workings of both the nucleus and the universe,” said Deborah Harris, Minerva project manager, in a press release, adding that “neutrino communication has a long way to go before it will be as effective.”
It will be a boon for armed forces due to independent, secure and reliable medium of communication technology.
