Strides made in nanotube-based mass measurements

August 2009
American Ceramic Society Bulletin;Aug2009, Vol. 88 Issue 7, p43
The article reports on the method discovered by researchers at a European Union-sponsored project for measuring masses at the atomic level by using carbon nanotubes. It states that research group turns a single nanotube into a transistor and used its vibration to modulate a current passing through it. Moreover, the researchers believe that they will be able to draw mass measurements of various types of molecules and atoms in real time.
