We study the energy transfer performance in electrically and magnetically coupled mechanical nanoresonators. Using the resonant scattering theory, we show that magnetically coupled resonators can achieve the same energy transfer performance as for their electrically coupled counterparts or even outperform them within the scale of interest. Magnetic and electric coupling are compared in the nanotube radio, a realistic example of a nano-scale mechanical resonator. The energy transfer performance… 
Unconventional two-dimensional vibrations of a decorated carbon nanotube under electric field: linking actuation to advanced sensing ability
It is shown that a carbon nanotube decorated with different types of charged metallic nanoparticles exhibits unusual two-dimensional vibrations when actuated by applied electric field, revealing the unique sensing ability of devices made of molecular filaments and metallic nanoparticle.

Pushing the limits of radiofrequency (RF) neuronal telemetry
By calculating the coupling between identical magnetic antennas inside a model of the body medium, this work shows an increase in the power transfer of up to 8 orders of magnitude higher than could be realized with the loops and dipoles, making the microscopic RF in-vivo transmitting antenna possible.
Electromagnetic limits to radiofrequency (RF) neuronal telemetry
The viability of a radiofrequency (RF) telemetry channel for reporting individual neuron activity wirelessly from an embedded antenna to an external receiver is determined and the severe penalty incurred by miniaturization of the antenna is revealed.
