Webinar – Intersecting Horizons: Physics, Internet of Things (IoT), and 5GWebinar @ Uzhhorod National University

On Tuesday, March 26, as part of the international scientific project “Deep Tech Empowerment for Higher Education Institutions” Skills2Scale, a webinar titled “Intersection of Horizons: Physics, Internet of Things (IoT), and 5G” took place. The event was initiated by representatives from the Faculty of Physics, involving collaboration from five faculties of the Uzhhorod National University.

The webinar was conducted in a hybrid format, combining both online and offline participation. The participants included academic and scientific staff, as well as students from the Faculty of Physics, totaling approximately 50 attendees. The speaker of the event was Alexander Homonnai, PhD in Physics and Mathematics, Associate Professor at the Department of Optics, Faculty of Physics, Uzhhorod National University.

During the webinar, participants had the opportunity to gain insights into the capabilities of 5G technologies, including their features, advantages, and drawbacks, as well as a comparison with other contemporary data transmission systems, including Wi-Fi 7 and Starlink. Oleksandr Homonnai also briefed attendees on the Internet of Things (IoT) and the impact of 5G networks and satellite communication on its operations. The event speaker elucidated the disparity between cloud and fog computing, along with their relationship with the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G.

A significant piece of information for physicists and researchers is the review of materials with low losses for 5G devices and the comparison of their efficiency based on key factors. Given that most scientific disciplines within the physics department are linked to materials science, this provided an opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with materials currently under active research and promising for the functional electronics of mobile communication for 5th and 6th generations.

Also featured in the webinar was Dr. Tetiana Babuka, PhD, Chair of the Council of Young Scientists at the Faculty of Physics, and Coordinator of the Scientific Grant Activities Department. She elaborated on the opportunities provided by the implementation of the international project “Deep Tech Empowerment for Higher Education Institutions” Skills2Scale at the Faculty of Physics for students and young scientists. Ms. Tetiana highlighted the significant impact of modern technologies on the educational and scientific components of Uzhhorod National University. She emphasized that any innovative invention begins with an idea, followed by scientific research, modeling, or design. Thus, students and young scientists were urged not to hesitate to present their innovative ideas at the annual “Startup-UzhNU” competition and to participate in the startup project or innovative ideas competition under the DeepTech Accelerator program
