5287Re: Diode Array: claim of clean energy
- Aug 18, 2005A scienitist named Wang and Millie Dresselhaus wrote a report in
Nature on using arrays of nanotubes as dipole antennas that capture
light energy like radio antennnas that capture radio EM waves. Wang
says it is currently not possible to make a diode to extract
electricity from the AC current sbecause they change at terrhertz
speeds, too fast for any known diodes.
