Active Nanostructure

This category includes new transistors, amplifiers, actuators, molecular machines, light-driven molecular motors, plasmonics, nanoscale fluidics, laser-emitting devices, and adaptive structures. An 'active' nanostructure changes its state during its operation (e.g. an actuator changes its dimensions). The new state may also be subject to other successive changes in the mechanical, electronic, magnetic, photonics, biological properties and other effects[springerlink:10.1007/s11051-006-9092-7].

Typical active nanostructures are components in nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), nanobiodevices, energy storage devices, and sensors which change their state during measurement. Common active nanostructures are photo, and chemically, electrically catalytic functions[springerlink:10.1007/s11051-006-9092-7].

Types of Active Nanostructures:

1. Bio-active Nanostructures: Potentially effecting human health and ecosystems utilizing targeted drugs and biodevices.[springerlink:10.1007/s11051-006-9092-7].

2. Physicochemical Active Nanostructures: 3D transistors, actuators, adaptive structures. [springerlink:10.1007/s11051-006-9092-7].
