Abstract

This effort will culminate in the demonstration of a new class of antennas, to allow the coupling of RF signals with nanoscale devices and sensors. An antenna for RF must be millimeters long, and nanoscale in diameter, if it is to interact with nanoscale devices. The aligned carbon nanotubes grown at NanoLab are synthesized in millimeter lengths, have good conductivity, and therefore should make excellent antennas. The work will entail the growth, characterization, and attachment of these antennas on test substrates, and their performance will be evaluated in collaboration with the University of Arizona.
