The press release linked below, however, goes a bit farther:
The carbon means that it could, possibly, be made by printing it on flexible substrates, which could, possibly, include clothes. The device might, possibly, be able to replace some or many of the components in a cellphone. Therefore, the press release title claims: Your T-shirt’s ringing: telecommunications in the spaser age.
