    Silicon metasurface structures that exhibit perfect absorption and focusing ability are presented. High refractive index silicon enables light confinement in the silicon nanoblocks, and tunability of the coupling rate is provided via the nanoblock geometric parameter.

    A nanoscale phase detector, in which mechanical vibration of a tip of carbon nanotube digitally receive and detect phase-modulated signals, is proposed. To enhance the received signal power, a current enhancement method exploiting noise is also introduced. The numerical results and theoretical discusion demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    We present a theoretical study of an adaptive microwave phase shifter based on a nanomechanical resonator. The phase shifter facilitates an arbitrary phase rotation in the range from −90° to +90° by tuning the applied bias voltage.

    Self-assembly has attracted significant attention as a simple method for the fabrication of nanodevices, in which components autonomously assemble into an organized pattern without the need for specific fabrication devices. Here, we report on the fabrication and unique application of two types of SiO2 nanostructures by taking advantage of self-assembly.
