  1. Nano Carbon: From ballistic transistors to atomic drumheads

    14 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Paul L. McEuen

    Carbon takes many forms, from precious diamonds to lowly graphite. Surprisingly, it is the latter that is the most prized by nano physicists. Graphene, a single layer of graphite, can serve as an impenetrable membrane a single atom thick. Rolled up into a nanometer-diameter cylinder--a carbon...

  2. Physics of Nanoscale Transistors: An Introduction to Electronics from the Bottom Up

    10 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom

    Transistor scaling has pushed channel lengths to the nanometer regime, and advances in nanoscience have opened up many new possibilities for devices. To realize these opportunities, our traditional understanding of electronic devices needs to be complemented with a new perspective that begins...
