Jun 11, 2004, 10:00 AM by (staff)
An employee in the University of Rhode Island's Physics Department has invented a new type of radio antenna that is one-third the size of any previous design. The patent-pending design, dubbed DLM (distributed load monopole,) can be applied to wide range of products and frequency bands, including cell phones. At high frequencies, the design is small enough to fit on a microchip.
