US Patent 7714798 - CNT yarn antenna

This patent from Nanocomp Technologies teaches how to use carbon nanotube yarn to construct antennas which minimize signal distortion. Claim 1 reads:

1. An antenna comprising:

a body portion;

an aggregate of extended length nanotubes along the body portion; and

a plurality of contact points between adjacent nanotubes to permit transmission of electromagnetic radiation while reducing resistivity at a high frequency.
