Nanotechnology - Videos
The first video shows the world's smallest radio from a single fiber of a carbon nanotube. "A single carbon nanotube molecule serves simultaneously as all essential components of a radio - antenna, tunable band-pass filter, amplifier and demodulator," physicist Alex Zettl of the University of California at Berkeley. "Using carrier waves in the commercially relevant 40-400 MHz range and both frequency and amplitude modulation (FM and AM), we were able to demonstrate successful music and voice reception." The nanotechnology video shows the nano radio playing the star wars theme.
The other nanotechnology videos were generated from Scanning Probe Microscope images and SPIP software and are available from Nanoscience Instruments.
