The world's smallest radio receiver has some big implications for the scientific community.
As anyone who works with technology should know, size doesn’t matter — at least not the way we usually think. From the smallest and most minuscule of devices can come enormous power and potential. And scientists have once again proven this to be true by designing the world’s smallest radio receiver , a creation of truly tiny proportions. A team of scientists from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences has successfully designed the smallest radio receiver in the world. ‘Small’ doesn’t really accurately convey the dimensions these scientists worked with: the building blocks of the receiver are the size of two atoms , and the whole thing was constructed from atomic-scale defects in pink diamonds. Although it’s remarkably small in dimensions, this radio receiver is made of tough stuff. It can withstand harsh environments with no compromise of it...
