MEMS vs. nanotubes: cell phones could use both

Abstract:
Can a nanotube boldly go where no MEMS have gone before – or at least share a ride to the destination? Two researchers at the University of California, Irvine, are using a $300,000 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop radio frequency signal processing components for wireless communication based on carbon nanotubes. Peter Burke and William Tang’s research could lead to a mobile phone with its electronic and mechanical functions on a single chip – saving power, space and cost.
