Chennai, June 4 (UNI) Coimbatore-based Arun Raaza, currently pursuing Master of Research in Photonics and Communication in the UK, has invented '45 Degree Beam Steerable Antenna', a breakthrough product set to revolutionise modern communications.

Raaza (23), who is pursuing his Masters degree at the Institute of Advanced Telecommunication (IAT), Swansea University, Wales, UK, had already patented his invention in the UK.

He showcased his invention at a press conference organised by the Association for Accredited Advisors on Overseas Education here today.

While travelling away from urban centres and moving into a desert, forest or other remote regions, one does not get proper signal coverage on the cellular phone. The reason being that the antenna attached or integrated with the communication device would radiate the signal power in all directions. Due to this signal power loss in unwanted directions, the battery power gets reduced.

To overcome this, the 45 degree beam steerable antenna radiates/transmits signal in a particular direction with high directivity and low signal loss, Raaza, a B.Tech (ECE) graduate, explained.

''Due to this, the battery power of the wireless device remains good and it will not have signal loss as it is transmitting in a targeted/desired direction only,'' he added.
