What Promises do Nanotubes and Nanowires Hold for Future Nanoelectronics Applications?
18 Feb 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joerg Appenzeller
Various low-dimensional materials are currently explored for future electronics applications. The common ground
for all these structures is that the surface related impact can no longer be ignored – the common approach applied
to predict properties of bulk-type three-dimensional (3D) materials. Relevant surface related effects could be e.g.
surface roughness scattering or it could mean that the broken symmetry at the interface causes quantization effects
that alter the entire band structure and result in a completely new type of material class. Examples of nano-
materials under current extensive study include: nanotubes, nanowires and graphene. While understanding the
novel properties of these materials is relevant in itself and does not need any further justification, the stakes are
different when nano-materials are discussed for electronics applications.
Logic Devices and Circuits on Carbon Nanotubes
05 Apr 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Joerg Appenzeller
Over the last years carbon nanotubes (CNs) have attracted an increasing interest as building blocks for nano-electronics applications. Due to their unique properties enabling e.g. ballistic transport at room-temperature over several hundred nanometers, high performance CN field-effect transistors (FETs) have become feasible. The successful improvement of CNFET performance however is not merely a result of the application of established concepts. It is indeed a consequence of the detailed study of the material specific properties that have guided the research on CN-based transistor applications.
