We investigate the operational characteristics of a nanorelay based on a conducting carbon nanotube placed on a terrace in a silicon substrate. The nanorelay is a three-terminal device that acts as a switch in the gigahertz regime. Potential applications include logic devices, memory elements, pulse generators, and current or voltage amplifiers. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
