Nanoscale devices such as carbon nanotube and nanowires based transistors, memristors and molecular devices are expected to play an important role in the development of new computing architectures. While their size represents a decisive advantage in terms of integration density, it also raises the critical question of how to efficiently address large(More)
The principle of using nanoscale memory devices as artificial synapses in neuromorphic circuits is recognized as a promising way to build ground-breaking circuit architectures tolerant to defects and variability. Yet, actual experimental demonstrations of the neural network type of circuits based on non-conventional/non-CMOS memory devices and displaying(More)
Time-resolved carrier dynamics is investigated by means of pump-probe measurements for both deposited and isolated carbon nanotubes. The relaxation of the photo-created carriers is studied and a new interpretation of the luminescence processes is given
A POM to remember: Hexanuclear Fe(III) polyoxometalate (POM) single-molecule magnets (see structure) can be noncovalently assembled on the surface of single-wall carbon nanotubes. Complementary characterization techniques (see TEM image and magnetic hysteresis loops) demonstrate the integrity and bistability of the individual molecules, which could be used(More)
We show that thin horizontal arrays of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) suspended above the channel of silicon MOSFETs can be used as vibrating gate electrodes. This new class of nano-electromechanical system (NEMS) combines the unique mechanical and electronic properties of SWNTs with an integrated silicon-based motion detection. Its electrical(More)
We present a study of electronic transport in short (12-base-pair) DNA duplexes covalently bonded (via thiol groups) to two gold electrodes obtained by a mechanically controllable break junction (MCJB) technique in dry conditions. A large number of DNA junctions have been repeatedly formed in order to obtain a conductance histogram that reveals a peak which(More)
2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag Gm Devices based on nanoscale objects with well-defined structures and original electronic properties are of great interest for the development of innovative electronic circuits, in particular if they offer novel functionalities (such as memory or sensing) and are compatible with large-scale self-assembly techniques. Among these(More)
We present the improvement of carbon nanotube field effects transistors (CNTFETs) performances by chemical tuning of the nanotube/substrate and nanotube/electrode interfaces. Our work is based on a method of selective placement of individual single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) by patterned aminosilane monolayer and its use for the fabrication of(More)
We describe the functionalization of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with 4-(2-trimethylsilyl)ethynylaniline and the subsequent attachment of a zinc-phthalocyanine (ZnPc) derivative using the reliable Huisgen 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition. The motivation of this study was the preparation of a nanotube-based platform which allows the facile fabrication of(More)
Using single molecules as the building blocks of electronic devices is the ultimate goal of molecular electronics. However, measuring, understanding and manipulating the transport of charge through molecules attached to nanosized electrodes remain difficult tasks. It is thus important to fabricate molecular junctions exhibiting reproducible and stable(More)
