Nanosys has taken out an exclusive licence for semiconductor nanowire-based nanolaser technology from the University of California. The research on which the licence was based was conducted by Dr Peidong Yang, Scientific Founder of Nanosys. The lasers were developed by growing zinc oxide (ZnO2) nanowires on sapphire substrates (Science, June 8, 2001). The nanowires form laser cavities with diameters varying between 20-150nm and lengths up to 10microns. In the Science paper, optical excitation resulted in surface emission of laser light with a wavelength of 385nm and a linewidth less than 0.3nm.

Motorola has produced a single-chip assisted global positioning system (A-GPS) receiver small enough to fit into a wristwatch called Motorola Instant GPS. The chip was produced on IBM's 0.25micron silicon germanium (SiGe) technology. The companies worked together to integrate IBM's technology to optimise the design. IBM plans to manufacture the new GPS chips for Motorola.

Analog Devices (ADI) claims the world's first MEMS-based gyroscope. The company says that it is the first commercially available device to integrate both an angular rate sensor and signal processing electronics onto a single piece of silicon. This integration allows the iMEMS ADXRS gyro to be smaller, more accurate, more reliable, and more economical than other angular rate sensors in its class, says ADI.
