UTFPR prepares the 3rd Colloquium on Visible Light Communications.

On November 11 and 12, 2021, the 3rd South American Colloquium on Visible Light Communications will be held, which aims to bring together students, academics and national and international organizations interested in this field of research.

Each day new alternatives of energy-efficient devices are more popular, especially considering lightning in our homes, both for its durability and its positive impact on our economy. That is the case of the current LED technology … But what if, aside from producing light, we could transmit data?

Visible light communication, also known as optical wireless communication or LiFi, is a new form of optical communication in which information is transmitted through light using bulbs with frequencies between 400 and 800THz, which corresponds to our visible frequency band. Simply put, we transmit information as the bulbs are switched on and off.

For this reason, this 11 and 12 of November, the 3rd South American Colloquium on Visible Light Communications, will take place where students, academics and telecommunications workers will meet to learn and discuss the many fields that encompass Visible Light Communications.
