Brownian fluctuations of carbon nanotube resonators

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Carbon nanotube mechanical resonators hold an exceptional sensing potential, relying on their extremely low mass. As a consequence, the fundamental thermal forces are transduced into very large motion fluctuations. However, the most basic properties of these fluctuations remain poorly understood. Here we couple the motion of nanotube-based resonators to a free propagating electron beam to demonstrate that singly-clamped nanotube resonators undergo thermally-driven Brownian motion.
