A method for measuring rotation of a thermal carbon nanomotor using centrifugal effect

Cai, Kun; Yu, Jingzhou; Shi, Jiao; Qin, Qing H


A thermal nanomotor is relatively easy to fabricate and regulate as it contains just a few or even no accessory devices. Since the double-wall carbon nanotube (CNT)-based rotary nanomotor was established in a thermostat, assessment of the rotation of the rotor (inner tube) in the stator (outer tube) of the nanomotor has been critical, but remains challenging due to two factors: the small size of the rotor (only a few nanometers) and the high rotational frequency (»1 GHz). To measure the...[Show more]
