Gamma-Rays for Telecommunication?

    Would gamma-rays be practical for use in telecommunication?


    Thanks

    Pray tell, what would you use for the transmitter, and what kind of
    modulation would you use?
    And what would be the signal bandwidth, and how many signals can you
    use?
    On a simple coax cable, one can have hundreds or so signals in both
    directions, and on an optical fiber, one can have thousands.
    So, i would expect millions of channels for gamma-ray tranceivers...

    Is any company planning something like this?
     
  4. I know a company that is developing cell phones using neutrinos that
    will have no dead zones, even at the center of the earth. They are
    also working on an anti-matter, gravity warp drive engine for cars
    based on element 116.
     
  5. The cell phone idea is cool. I wonder how they got 12 million gallons
    of water stored inside the antenna. ;-)

    It's like that old joke about the million-dollar-a-plate fundraiser: a
    tough sell, but you only need to sell one.

    No offense but research has proven telecommunication with neutrinos impossible.

    But they are so "easy" to detect - - all you need are a few billion of
    them per second, millions of dollars in a verrrry specially constructed
    detector, and wait a few years to detect one or two...

    I like the idea of using *photons* for telecommunication. You get some
    electrons moving real fast, see, then change their direction and accelerate
    them real fast in the other direction. Do that somewhere between half a
    million times a second and 1000 million times a second or so... nevermind...
    been there, done that.
