Today A Nano-Radio, Tomorrow A Micro-Semiconductor

A radio made out of carbon nano-tubes could get better reception, than the current bulky silicon-based models. Researchers led by John Rogers at University of Illinois solved the amplification problems that had stymied previous nano-radios by making their radio on a quartz wafer the size of a grain of sand. The other… » 1/30/08 6:30am 1/30/08 6:30am
