Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) are grown by a plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) method at 600 °C. The nanotubes are of high quality as characterized by microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and electrical transport measurements. High performance field effect transistors are obtained with the PECVD nanotubes. Interestingly, electrical(More)
An oxygen-assisted hydrocarbon chemical vapor deposition method is developed to afford large-scale, highly reproducible, ultra-high-yield growth of vertical single-walled carbon nanotubes (V-SWNTs). It is revealed that reactive hydrogen species, inevitable in hydrocarbon-based growth, are damaging to the formation of sp(2)-like SWNTs in a diameter-dependent(More)
Probe-based memory devices using ferroelectric media have the potential to achieve ultrahigh data-storage densities under high write-read speeds. However, the high-speed scanning operations over a device lifetime of 5-10 years, which corresponds to a probe tip sliding distance of 5-10 km, can cause the probe tip to mechanically wear, critically affecting(More)
InxGa1-xSb is an attractive candidate for high performance III-V p-metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors (pMOSFETs) due to its high bulk hole mobility that can be further enhanced with the use of strain. We fabricate and study InxGa1 xSb-channel pMOSFETs with atomic layer deposition Al2O3 dielectric and self-aligned source/drain formed by ion(More)
For single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) field effect transistors, vertical scaling of high kappa dielectrics by atomic layer deposition (ALD) currently stands at approximately 8 nm with a subthreshold swing S approximately 70-90 mV/decade at room temperature. ALD on as-grown pristine SWNTs is incapable of producing a uniform and conformal dielectric layer(More)
We report the room temperature electroluminescence (EL) at 1.6 microm of a Ge n+/p light emitting diode on a Si substrate. Unlike normal electrically pumped devices, this device shows a super linear luminescence enhancement at high current. By comparing different n type doping concentrations, we observe that a higher concentration is required to achieve(More)
Precise electrical manipulation of nanoscale defects such as vacancy nano-filaments is highly desired for the multi-level control of ReRAM. In this paper we present a systematic investigation on the pulse-train operation scheme for reliable multi-level control of conductive filament evolution. By applying the pulse-train scheme to a 3 bit per cell HfO2(More)
In the presence of triethylamine, (Z)-(2-acetoxy-1-alkenyl)phenyl-lambda(3)-iodanes react with thioureas or thioamides in MeOH to give 2,4-disubstituted thiazoles directly in good yields. The reaction probably involves generation of highly reactive alpha-lambda(3)-iodanyl ketones through ester exchange of the beta-acetoxy group with liberation of methyl(More)
This work presents a novel method to introduce a sustainable biaxial tensile strain larger than 1% in a thin Ge membrane using a stressor layer integrated on a Si substrate. Raman spectroscopy confirms 1.13% strain and photoluminescence shows a direct band gap reduction of 100meV with enhanced light emission efficiency. Simulation results predict that a(More)
Plasmonic gratings of different periodicities are fabricated on top of Silicon nanocrystals embedded in Silicon Dioxide. Purcell enhancements of up to 2 were observed, which matches the value from simulations. Plasmonic enhancements are observed for the first three orders of the plasmonic modes, with the peak enhancement wavelength varying with the(More)
