The company, founded in 1996, has two other technologies in development. It is working on transmitting television over high-speed Internet lines and nanotechnology-based batteries.
Bose-Einstein condensates magnetometer Physicists at the University of Heidelberg have used a one-dimensional BEC as a sensitive probe of the magnetic fields emanating from a nearby sample. The field sensitivity achieved thereby is at the level of magnetic fields of nanotesla strength (equivalent to an energy scale of about 10-14 electronvolt) with a spatial resolution of only 3 microns. Some methods (such as scanning hall probe microscopes) can attain finer spatial resolution and some methods (such as superconducting quantum interference devices -- SQUIDs) can attain higher magnetic sensitivity, but for its range, the Heidelberg device has a region of the sensitivity-vs-resolution space all to itself.
In both its battery and magnetometer efforts, mPhase has joined forces with Bell Labs. The two have inked deals to co-develop, market and sell the nanobatteries and magnetometers.
