We integrate carbon nanotube (CNT) fabrication with commercial CMOS VLSI fabrication on a single substrate suitable for emerging hybrid nanotechnology applications. This co-integration combines the inherent advantages of CMOS and CNTs. These emerging applications include CNT optical, biological, chemical, and gas sensors that require complex CMOS electronics for sensor control, calibration, and signal processing of sensor output. We demonstrate the successful co-integration on a single chip with a vehicle circuit; a two transistor cascode megahertz amplifier utilizing both silicon nMOS and CNT transistors.
