A compact graphene based nano-antenna for communication in nano-network

M. Saravanan, V.R. Prakash

Abstract


Due to recent advances in nanotechnology, the use of nano-devices and its
network becomes more popular in the field of medical, commercial and
military applications. One of the major issues in designing nano-network is
miniaturization of nano-devices which are limited due to communication
antenna used in that device and its power constraints. At 1000nm size, an
antenna resonates at around 100 THz which suffers from greater propagation
loss and provides signal coverage of micrometer distances. Hence there is a
need for nano-antenna with reduced size and also operating at mid infrared
frequencies to provide a good signal coverage. In this paper, graphene-based
nano-antenna is presented. The model resonates at 55THz frequency with a
peak gain of 5.47 dB in the propagation direction. The model exploits the
principle of surface plasma polarition waves for miniaturization and achieves
50% size reduction when compared to conventional nano-antenna and best
suitable for nano-network communications.
