Tunable Liquid Metal Antennas

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 - 10:31 in Physics & Chemistry

Researchers have held tremendous interest in liquid metal electronics for many years, but a significant and unfortunate drawback slowing the advance of such devices is that they tend to require external pumps that can't be easily integrated into electronic systems. So a team of North Carolina State University researchers set out to create a reconfigurable liquid metal antenna controlled by voltage only, which they describe this week in the Journal of Applied Physics.
