Detecting single molecules inside a carbon nanotube to control molecular sequences using inertia trapping phenomenon
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2012

Here we show the detection of single gas molecules inside a carbon nanotube based on the change in resonance frequency and amplitude associated with the inertia trapping phenomenon. As its direct implication, a method for controlling the sequence of small molecule is then proposed to realize the concept of manoeuvring of matter atom by atom in one dimension. The detection as well as the implication is demonstrated numerically with the molecular dynamics method. It is theoretically assessed that it is possible for a physical model to be fabricated in the very near future.
