Electron Transport in Schottky Barrier CNTFETs
24 Oct 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Bejenari
A given review describes models based on Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin approximation, which are used to obtain I-V characteristics for ballistic CNTFETs with Schottky-Barrier (SB) contacts. The SB is supposed to be an exponentially or linearly decaying function along the channel. The ...

10 Jan 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk
This presentation describes structure and mechanical property determinations on carbon and boron nitride (sp2-bonded) nanotubes , as deduced by transmission electron microscopy.
Electron Phonon Interaction in Carbon Nanotube Devices
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Sayed Hasan
With the end of silicon technology scaling in sight, there has been a lot of interest in alternate novel channel materials and device geometry. Carbon nanotubes, the ultimate one-dimensional (1D) wire, is one such possibility. Since the report of the first CNT transistors, lots has been learned...
Carbon Nanotube Electronics: Modeling, Physics, and Applications
28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Jing Guo
In recent years, significant progress in understanding the physics of carbon nanotube electronic devices and in identifying potential applications has occurred. In a nanotube, low bias transport can be nearly ballistic across distances of several hundred nanometers. Deposition of high-k gate...

Self-Consistent Geometry, Density and Stiffness of Carbon Nanotubes
05 May 2010 | | Contributor(s):: R. Byron Pipes
A self-consistent set of relationships is developed for the physical properties of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCN) and their hexagonal arrays as a function of the chiral vector integer pair, (n,m). Properties include effective radius, density, principal Young’s modulus, and specific Young’s...
