CVD process tames carbon nanotube growth
News & Analysis  
4/16/2002   Post a comment
A chemical-vapor deposition technique has been applied to carbon nanotubes to give them unusual electronic properties, according to researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The treated nanotubes could be used by chip makers to interconnect single-electron transistors with high-efficiency wires. The group aims to build a nanotube architecture that will exhibit near-superconducting speeds at room temperature, plus the ability to pack devices tighter and control quantum effects.
