Cheaper smartphones with better sound and data quality? Count me in!

I haven't figured out what these things are made from, but I'd guess they're metallic. Apparantly it is possible to use electron spin within an electromagnetic field in order to produce high-quality, powerful microwaves – the sort of wavelengths mobile signals transmit. This technology is not only relatively inexpensive and with better quality, but also smaller than contemporary chips – nanometer small.

To be honest, I'm not sure I want mobile devices to get any thinner than they already are, unless you're proposing a star trek style communicator, but I'll be happy when these oscillators manage to improve sound quality – and broadband data transfer quality. I'd also be curious to know if the same technique can be applied to produce other wavelengths – lowering the cost of X-ray production, for example, would make medical care a whole lot more accessible and portable.
