Nanoscale Wireless Technology

At ChronoWake, we strive to remain on the cutting-edge. We openly embrace technological advances that improve product quality and efficiency, minimize power consumption, reduce impact on the environment, or otherwise enhance our company and society. Nanotechnology promises many improvements over existing technology. Ryan Goldstein, President/CEO, wrote a detailed overview of the current state of nanotechnology in the wireless realm. As it becomes economically feasible, we plan to implement such technology into our products.

  1. Good question. While MWNTs are easier to make, their physical properties are a lot less predictable. Each MWNT would have to be specifically calibrated for use as an amplitude modulated demodulator. Conversely, SWNTs have very uniform and predictable properties, meaning that their characteristics, such as current-voltage curves, can be precisely predicted by simple metrics such as radius and length.

    Further, only semiconducting SWNTs have been shown to possess the property of a nonlinear current-voltage curve. Effective demodulation relies on biasing the nanotube such that the operating point is centered on the maximum nonlinear portion. MWNTs (and metallic SWNTs) have more linear I-V curves, making them much less effective demodulators.
