Scientists have created an implant antenna
In general, seeing such news, most people immediately associate with a community of people, each of which is monitored. In general, something like 1984, only in a modern way. Of course, everything can be, although the new antenna implant was created by doctors with the most, no matter what, good purpose (yes, yes, remember the saying about good intentions). Interestingly, in this case, the meme "British scientists" is not applicable, since scientists from Italy distinguished themselves. Researchers have created a miniature antenna of "liquid" silk and atomized particles of gold. Why is such an implant needed? Scientists claim that this technological novelty will track
For example, such an antenna will give a signal in case of a change in the glucose level in the body of a diabetic, or report a shortage of certain useful substances. Fiorenzo Omenetto, professor of biomedical engineering at Tufts University, argues that silk is the best material to create such a device, since it is biocompatible with almost any fabric. In addition, it is very durable - stronger than the same Kevlar of similar size and thickness. Being implanted into the body, such an antenna will not remind of itself in any way (yeah, and it will not be easy to find it, as different superheroes in science fiction films do).
How will the antenna transmit the necessary data “out”? Everything is very complicated, and at the same time simple - it will respond to fluctuations in the electromagnetic field that lie outside the usual range for "industrial" radiation. Scientists are trying to create such a combination for the antenna material that will respond to the terahertz range - it is in this range that proteins, enzymes and other substances resonate. That is, a resonance table of various substances will be created, comparing the data of which, it will be possible to understand which substance is missing, and which, on the contrary, is in excess.
The terahertz range is a new area of research that few have previously paid attention to. Now, scientists from many countries are working with "T-rays" of various compounds of the human body and animals. One fine day, the antenna mentioned above will become part of a reliable monitoring system for various characteristics of the human body.
Already, scientists have checked the operation of the antenna, and were quite satisfied with the results - it really resonates with some specific frequencies. The next step, the stage of the study, will be the implantation of the antenna into the pig’s body and testing its operation in practice.
