Nanoscale Transmitters Will Transform Your Phone

A team of UCLA scientists has developed a microwave oscillator that uses the spin of electrons, rather than the more conventional charge, to create radio-frequency waves. While that might not sound particularly impressive, it brings with it some major benefits.

First off, it means the oscillator can be 10,000-times smaller than those that are used at the moment. That is a pretty amazing leap in size, and it means that the devices will finally make their way on to integrated circuits—as their size and design is compatible with current chip manufacturing standards.

2. Quantum theory rules!

Literally!

Sadly, it still doesn't mean water has memory, or that psychic energy is real.


This post is just an excuse to R&K
