Tunable nanoresonators constructed from telescoping nanotubes.


We have created a tunable mechanical nanoscale resonator with potential applications in precise mass, force, position, and frequency measurement. The device consists of a specially prepared multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) suspended between a metal electrode and a mobile, piezo-controlled contact. By exploiting the unique telescoping ability of MWNTs, we… (More)
