Engineers Create Smallest FM Radio Transmitter Using Graphene
2013-11-19 10:30:16

Ranjini Raghunath for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of engineers at Columbia University have created the smallest ever FM radio transmitter using a form of carbon known as graphene. The paper describing the device and its potential was published online on Nov. 17 in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Like diamond or graphite, graphene is made up of carbon atoms that are laid out in hexagonal patterns in a layer a million times thinner than a sheet of paper. The team used...

The latest research from a Kansas State University chemical engineer may help improve humidity and pressure sensors, particularly those used in outer space. Vikas Berry, William H. Honstead professor of chemical engineering, and his research team are using graphene quantum dots to improve sensing devices in a twofold project. The first part involves producing the graphene quantum dots, which are ultrasmall pieces of graphene. Graphene is a single-atom thick sheet of carbon atoms and has...

Writing in Nature Communications, the researchers report the first graphene-based transistor with bistable characteristics, which means that the device can spontaneously switch between two electronic states. Such devices are in great demand as emitters of electromagnetic waves in the high-frequency range between radar and infra-red, relevant for applications such as security systems and medical imaging. Bistability is a common phenomenon — a seesaw-like system has two equivalent...

Cell Phone Performance Might Improve With 'Nanoresonators'
2012-08-31 13:41:10

Researchers have learned how to mass produce tiny mechanical devices that could help cell phone users avoid the nuisance of dropped calls and slow downloads. The devices are designed to ease congestion over the airwaves to improve the performance of cell phones and other portable devices. "There is not enough radio spectrum to account for everybody's handheld portable device," said Jeffrey Rhoads, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue University. The overcrowding...
