Nanoantenna with metamaterial effects are on track to boost data storage by ten times and can be used for cancer treatment and other applications

Nanantennas by Nano-Meta Technologies provide for efficient control of light with nano-meter precision. The company is developing nanostructured compounds that can concentrate light through plasmonic effects to surmount a hurdle called the diffraction limit, which affects the resolution of light microscopes and lithography. Possible applications include: * Heat-assisted magnetic data recording (HAMR) allowing for ultra …
