Graphical Abstract:


Nano-antennas fabricated by Carbon nanotube arrays are investigated in this paper. By exposing a nano-antenna to electromagnetic wave, we evaluate the effects of nanotubes displacement, resonant frequency, and induced electrical field on the nano-antenna performance. The effects of the number of array elements, as well as statistical distribution of the elements length are presented. Furthermore, the effect of intertube distance on the induced electrostatic field is simulated. The results of this research can be effectively used in designing and fabricating Carbon nano-antennas for the innovative applications.

Keywords: Carbon nanotube, electromechanical vibration, nano-antenna, nano- receiver.
