Abstract     [Full Text]
    Carbon nanotube characterized by additional inductive effect as compared with the traditional conductors like copper wires of the same size. Consequently, carbon nanotubes have high characteristic impedance and slow wave propagation in comparison with traditional conductors. Due to these characteristics, carbon nanotubes can be used as antenna. In view of this, we describe and review the present research progress on carbon nanotube antennas. We present different analysis models and results which are developed to investigate the characteristics of CNT antennas. Then we conclude by summarizing the characteristics of CNT antennas and specifying the operating frequency limit.
 
Key Words
    carbon nanotubes; RF circuit model; dynamic conductivity of SWCNT dipole antennas; optical antenna
