Noise boosts nanotube antennas

Abstract:
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.
