This is great to see. Anyone else doing work in this area?

Janine, I'm still laughing out loud about your "redd up dahn tahn" comment. It's just too funny. My wife used to teach up in Butler County, north of Pittsburgh, and that's exactly how the locals sound. They also have some grammatical oddities. Like for instance, "This needs to be fixed" becomes "this needs fixed." And "Is that as much as you've completed?" becomes "Is that all the more you've completed?"

Anyway, this issue with inductors on chips has been a problem from way back. It's basically a mechanical problem. So this is indeed good news, if high tech magnetic materials can be stuffed between the coils to reduce the size of the inductor. What people often do now is stay away from inductors, using RC circuits instead to emulate the behavior of an inductor.

Glad you appreciated that Bert! I did some substitute teaching while in Pittsburgh and it was a real social awakening. Having grown up in NJ, I didn't expect people from PA to have such a different way of speaking. (I was used to weirdisms from eastern PA, like "throw grandpa down the stairs his hat," but having a really different phonetic lexicon was a surprise.) The thing that bugged me the most was yu'ns for you. Oh, that and the fact that my students thought the Univeristy of Delaware was in NJ, but that's another story...Having been working in the microwave industry since 19cough cough, I'm really glad that inductors are getting some attention. Looking forward to seeing what's next!

Y'uns, how could I forget. Y'uns is the "grammatical" equivalent of the southern y'all. It is the plural of you, because we have all forgotten by now that the singular of you is thou.

Y'uns must mean "you ones."

For some reason y'all is so much more appealing to me. Not like fingernails on a chalkboard (sadly, my kids probably wouldn't get that reference...)

Really a great research

It is really a very nice finding by UC Berkeley Scientists this will help integrate more RF Circuits using silicon and nano magnetic material. Now this will require few more steps to find how to use the nano magnetic material in the IC Fabrication process with necessary modifications in the fabrication equipments.
