    This could be earth shattering news.  As reported in Nature, compact antennas rely on an EM wave resonance, and therefore typically have a size of more than λ0/10, that is one-tenth of the EM wavelength λ0.  Therefore, the only way for antennas to get smaller is to go up in frequency.  One hope to bypass this physical law are new antenna concepts using EM wave radiation and reception mechanisms for the reduction of antenna size by two orders of magnitude.  This is exciting in many fields of endevour but particularly nanobots and namometer electronc devices.  The following article demonstrates successful research into developing practical solutions in ME antennas:  https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-017-00343-8 .
