Zero to 5G: the science of mobile communication

Sunday 2 April

Since the start of UK mobile phone services in 1985 the technology has made massive leaps forward and the cost and size of devices has shrunk. Have you ever wondered how all this technology works? Where will it go next? Where do the laws of physics set limits to coverage and speed? How can future technology developments push those limits?

Trevor Gill, former chief scientist of Vodafone Group R&D, will explain how the pioneering work of James Clerk Maxwell laid the foundations for the mobile phone, as well as discussing the key ideas behind each new generation of technology and looking forward to a world of 5G and connected things. 

Supported by the James Clerk Maxwell Foundation
