A shorter waveguide ? 80 Ám in the UT work ? has other advantages, including a low propagation loss and much lower power dissipation. "In a Pentium 4, over 50% of the computer's power is consumed by interconnection," Chen said. The UT device operated at 300 kHz; further improvement is expected by optimizing the electrode design and reducing the contact resistance.
