Nanotubes for Small Antennas

Small wireless sensors sense the environment, with demand anticipated to increase dramatically. While sensor circuitry keeps shrinking, a corresponding reduction in antenna size leads to shorter communication range due to low antenna efficiency/gain. More power is needed or conversely, the antennas can be tuned with a lossy matching network. Low loss antenna matching networks are needed for small wireless sensors.
