Amped about Amplifiers

San Diego is amped about amplifiers lately. Electrical engineering assistant professor James Buckwalter published a ground breaking paper outlining the silicon-baled millimeter wave amplifier he invented that provides both high gain and high bandwidth.

The story of Buckwalter's Cascaded Constructive Wave Amplifier has been making the rounds on the tech Web sites, including NetworkWorld, and a tech Web site from China. Unfortunately, I can't read the Chinese news story, but the advertisement on the right side of the page for "iPhone earrings" is pretty cool.
