    We report the operational characteristics of ultrashort SONOS memories down to ∼30-nm effective gate length. Good sub-threshold swing, good drain-induced barrier lowering (∼120 mV/decade), and ∼2.4 V of memory window down to the smallest dimensions demonstrate the improvements that result from a thin tunneling oxide and a large trapping center density. The use of distributed defects an... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the energy bands of chiral-type single-walled carbon nanotubes are studied employing a new curvilinear lattice theory and its reciprocal lattice aided by the spherical triangle theory. In this theory, the notion of a distance law is introduced as a constraint to determine the electronic characteristics of carbon nanotubes. The chiral tubes are proven to be semiconducting or metallic... View full abstract»

    There has been considerable research on quantum dot cellular automata (QCA) as a new computing scheme in the nanoscale regimes. The basic logic element of this technology is the majority voter. In this paper, a detailed simulation-based characterization of QCA defects and study of their effects at logic level are presented. Testing of these QCA devices at logic level is investigated and compared w... View full abstract»

    The basic Boolean primitive in quantum cellular automata (QCA) is the majority gate. In this paper, a method for reducing the number of majority gates required for computing three-variable Boolean functions is developed to facilitate the conversion of sum-of-products expression into QCA majority logic. Thirteen standard functions are introduced to represent all three-variable Boolean functions and... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the β-material concept helps to elaborate and explore a new model for the indentation cycle of elastoplastic materials. The proposed approach takes into account the nonlinear behavior of homogeneous and isotropic materials. It uses the idea of a nonlinear adaptive spring (NAS) with changing properties according to the depth of penetration to accurately reproduce the material be... View full abstract»

    Anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) has attracted a lot of attention for its application on the template-synthesis of nanomaterials. Highly ordered AAO template is essential to its applications. Here, we propose an electrical-bridge model based on the analysis of carrier ion drifts in the oxide layer and the electrical-field distribution. This model can elucidate the AAO growth mechanism, and allow better... View full abstract»

    The development of simple laser-based technologies for the fabrication of complicated three-dimensional (3-D) microstructures with a structure size down to 100 nm is reported. These technologies are based on nonlinear multiphoton laser-matter interaction processes allowing to overcome the diffraction limit and to fabricate 3-D structures inside transparent materials. Examples on nanostructuring of... View full abstract»
