Noise boosts nanotube antennas
Researchers at the University of Southern California have shown that the right amount of noise can enable carbon nanotube transistors to detect weak electrical signals. This is the same effect - stochastic resonance - that neurons use to communicate in biological brains. The effect makes nanotubes useful as microscopic antennas in communications devices, including cell phones.
