Nanosprings: nanoelectromechanical actuators

Abstract:
Nanostructures such as nanorods, nanowires and nanosprings are building blocks of future nanomachines and have potential applications in nanosensors and nanodevices. Due to their high structural flexibility and strength, nanosprings should be suitable for applications in nanoelectromagnetic sensors and devices.
