Carbon Nanotubes Reduce Transistor Footprint to Forty Nanometers

Carbon Nanotubes Reduce Transistor Footprint to Forty Nanometers

There have been increasing signs coming from the research community that carbon nanotubes are beginning to step up to the challenge of offering a real alternative to silicon-based complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) transistors . Now, researchers at IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center have advanced carbon nanotube-based transistors another step toward meeting the demands of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) for the next decade. The IBM researchers have fabricated a p -channel transistor based on carbon nanotubes that takes up less than half the space of leading silicon technologies while operating at a lower voltage. In research described in the journal Science , the IBM scientists used a carbon nanotube p -channel to reduce the transistor footprint; their transistor contains all components to 40 square nanometers, an ITRS roadmap b...
