Our research paper entitled “Acoustically Actuated Ultra-compact NEMS Magnetoelectric Antennas” was featured in Nature News and Science News!

NATURE Ultra-small antennas point way to miniature brain implants Metal antennas that send and receive TV signals and radio waves could soon be replaced by tiny films up to one hundred times smaller, scientists say. Among the possible benefits are smaller smartphones and wearable technology, and miniaturized implantable devices to stimulate brain cells. Conventional antennas… Continue Reading →
