The scope of this Minireview is to provide an overview of the recent progress on carbon nanotube electrodes applied to organic thin film transistors. After an introduction on the general aspects of the charge injection processes at various electrode-semiconductor interfaces, we discuss the great potential of carbon nanotube electrodes for organic thin film(More)
This paper deals with the possible use of carbon-based nano-interconnects for terahertz applications. The electrodynamics of nano-interconnects, either made of carbon nanotubes or graphene nanoribbons, may be conveniently described by means of a semi-classical transport model, based on the modified Boltzmann transport equation. In this paper, this model is(More)
We propose a bottom-up procedure to fabricate an easy-to-engineer graphene-based device, consisting of a microstrip-like circuit where few-layer graphene nanoplatelets are used to contact two copper electrodes. The graphene nanoplatelets are obtained by the microwave irradiation of intercalated graphite, i.e., an environmentally friendly, fast and low-cost(More)
A new possible mechanism of signal detection in the THz range is investigated, based on the excitation of resonances due to the tunneling effect between two graphene nanoribbons. A simple detector is proposed, where two graphene nanoribbons are used to contact two copper electrodes. The terminal voltages are shown to exhibit strong resonances when the(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) due to their unique mechanical, thermal and electrical properties are being investigated as promising candidate material for on-chip and off-chip interconnects. The attractive mechanical properties of CNTs, including high Youngs modulus, resiliency and low thermal expansion coefficient offer great advantage for reliable and strong(More)
