SENSING OF VIRUS USING SINGLE WALLED BORON NITRIDE NANOTUBE: A REVOLUTIONARY TECHNIQUE
The feasibility of the Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) as nanomechanical resonators is investigated in the present study. An FEM model of fixed -free SWBNNT is used to investigate the suitability of SWBNNT as virus sensor. Dynamic analysis of fixed free SWBNNT has been carried out with different dimension of nanotubes keeping thickness and diameter constant. In this paper we have calculated the frequency shift of SWBNNT by taking difference of resonant frequency of SWBNNT with and without the virus atom. It is investigated that more is a frequency shift more will be the mass sensitivity of nanotubes.
