The Incredible Shrinking Antenna

The Incredible Shrinking Antenna:

Chief Technology Officer Carles Puente, head scientist for the company, who in 1995 filed the world’s first application for a patent on fractal antennas for mobile telecommunications, said: “If you use more complex shapes related to fractals, they fill the space in a more efficient way. Taking advantage of some of these properties and developing a new family of geometries that were more efficient in packaging multiple wavelengths into more space is how we came to where we are.”

‘Boring’ B2B tech like this is ace.
