Coupled Carbon Nanotubes Enable Efficient Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Coupled Carbon Nanotubes Enable Efficient Signal Transmission from Nanocomponents

Researchers at the Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel, along with colleagues from ETH Zurich, have developed an efficient method to transmit signals from nanocomponents. In an innovative layout, they connected a nanocomponent to two electrical conductors. This made the electrical signal to uncouple in a very efficient manner. [More]
