En route toward high performance electronics based on single-walled carbon nanotubes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) could replace silicon in high-performance electronics with their exceptional electrical properties and intrinsic ultra-thin body. During the past five years, the major focus of this field is gradually shifting from proof-of-concept prototyping in academia to technology development in industry with emphasis on manufacturability and integration issues. Here we will review some most significant recent advances, with focus on assembling high purity semiconducting SWNTs into well aligned arrays. Future challenges and research opportunities in this field will also be discussed.
