Diamond Nitrogen-vacancy Centers Power World's Smallest Radio Receiver

A tiny radio whose building blocks are the size of two atoms has been developed by Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Built out of an assembly of atomic-scale defects in pink diamonds, it is the world’s smallest radio receiver. The device can withstand extremely harsh environments and is biocompatible, meaning it could work anywhere from a probe on Venus to a pacemaker in a human heart. [Read More]
