Some considerations on nanowires in nanoelectronics

David K. Ferry, Matthew J. Gilbert, Richard Akis

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Nanowires have become of great interest in recent years, and great promise has followed their development. In this paper, we review the role of ballistic transport, the ballistic-to-diffusive crossover, and the possible impact of nanowires in integrated circuits.
