Nanoantennas and high-speed optical data networks

Via KurzweilAI.net — Looks like this nanotech has applications in communications, medicine and alternative power, to name three.

Nanoantennas allow for high-speed optical data networks

KurzweilAI.net, Oct. 22, 2009

Gold nanoantennas smaller than 100 nm that transmit and receive light have been developed by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology researchers.

The antennas could be used in new optical high-speed data networks and in chip manufacturing and photovoltaic devices, and for the study of individual biomolecules.
