Spider Web Inspired Technology Will Help Create the Internet of the Future

Scientists, inspired by the cobweb, have combined nanotechnology and machine learning to create a nanomechanical sensor. This work will help in the study of gravity and dark matter, as well as for the development of the quantum Internet, navigation and sensing.

One of the biggest challenges in studying vibrating objects on the smallest scale, such as those used in sensors or quantum equipment, is how to prevent the fragile state of the surrounding thermal noise from affecting them.

For example, quantum equipment is usually stored at temperatures close to absolute zero (-273.15 ° C), and refrigeration equipment costs half a million euros apiece to operate it.

The authors of the new work have created a cobweb-shaped microchip sensor that resonates well in isolation from noise and works at room temperature. The researchers took inspiration from the cobweb design because a spider that catches its prey easily monitors the vibration inside the structure. Nor is the hunt affected by ambient wind or other external vibrations. According to the authors, this is an ideal design that does not respond to external stimuli and creates an isolated vibration.
