Single- and multi-wall carbon nanotube field-effect transistors
We fabricated field-effect transistors based on individual single- and multi-wall carbon nanotubes and analyzed their performance. Transport through the nanotubes is dominated by holes and, at room
Nanotubes for electronics.
Graphene photodetectors for high-speed optical communications
A graphene-based photodetector with unprecedented photoresponsivity and the ability to perform error-free detection of 10 Gbit s−1 data streams is demonstrated. The results suggest that
Mechanical Properties of Carbon Nanotubes
This paper presents an overview of the mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes, starting from the linear elastic parameters, nonlinear elastic instabilities and buckling, and the inelastic
Ultrafast graphene photodetector
This work demonstrates ultrafast transistor-based photodetectors made from single- and few-layer graphene that do not degrade for optical intensity modulations up to 40 GHz and suggests that the intrinsic bandwidth may exceed 500 GHz.
High-performance carbon nanotube field-effect transistor with tunable polarities
State-of-the-art carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (CNFETs) behave as Schottky-barrier-modulated transistors. It is known that vertical scaling of the gate oxide significantly improves the
Band-to-band tunneling in carbon nanotube field-effect transistors.
How the structure of the nanotube is the key enabler of this particular one-dimensional tunneling effect is discussed, which is controlled here by the valence and conduction band edges in a bandpass-filter-like arrangement.
The role of metal-nanotube contact in the performance of carbon nanotube field-effect transistors.
It is shown that a large data set of more than 100 devices can be consistently accounted by a model that relates the on-current of a CNFET to a tunneling barrier whose height is determined by the nanotube diameter and the nature of the source/drain metal contacts.
Engineering Carbon Nanotubes and Nanotube Circuits Using Electrical Breakdown
A simple and reliable method for selectively removing single carbon shells from MWNTs and SWNT ropes to tailor the properties of these composite nanotubes and to directly address the issue of multiple-shell transport.
