• ### Pd/Au/SiC Nanostructured Diodes for Nanoelectronics: Room Temperature Electrical Properties

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):414 - 421
Cited by:  Papers (15)
| |PDF (553 KB) | HTML

Pd/Au/SiC nanostructured Schottky diodes were fabricated embedding Au nanoparticles (NPs) at the metal-semiconductor interface of macroscopic Pd/SiC contacts. The Au NPs mean size was varied controlling the temperature and time of opportune annealing processes. The electrical characteristics of the nanostructured diodes were studied as a function of the NPs mean size. In particular, using the stan... View full abstract»

• ### Continuum Models Incorporating Surface Energy for Static and Dynamic Response of Nanoscale Beams

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):422 - 431

| |PDF (290 KB) | HTML

Nanoscale beams are commonly found in nanomechanical and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and other nanotechnology-based devices. Surface energy has a significant effect on nanoscale structures and is associated with their size-dependent behavior. In this paper, a general mechanistic model based on the Gurtin-Murdoch continuum theory accounting for surface energy effects is presented to analyz... View full abstract»

• ### High-Frequency Measurements on InAs Nanowire Field-Effect Transistors Using Coplanar Waveguide Contacts

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):432 - 437
Cited by:  Papers (14)
| |PDF (366 KB) | HTML

In this paper, a 50-μm-pitch coplanar waveguide pattern for on-wafer high-frequency measurements on nanowire FET is used. The contact structure exhibits relatively large parasitic elements in comparison to the intrinsic device making a precise deembedding both necessary and challenging. A single InAs nanowire FET with a large gate length of 1.4 μm possesses after deembe... View full abstract»

| |PDF (1238 KB) | HTML

This paper demonstrates a simple second-order controller that eliminates scan-induced oscillation and provides integral tracking action. The controller can be retrofitted to any scanning probe microscope with position sensors by implementing a simple digital controller or operational amplifier circuit. The controller is demonstrated to improve the tracking bandwidth of an NT-MDT scanning probe mic... View full abstract»

• ### Nonquasi-Static Effects and the Role of Kinetic Inductance in Ballistic Carbon-Nanotube Transistors

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):449 - 463
Cited by:  Papers (6)
| |PDF (483 KB) | HTML

Nonquasi-static effects in ballistic carbon-nanotube (CN) FETs (CNFETs) are examined by solving the Boltzmann transport equation self-consistently with the Poisson equation. We begin by specifying the proper boundary conditions that should be employed in time-dependent simulations at high speeds; these are the proper boundary conditions for a characterization of the so-called intrinsic transistor,...

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):464 - 469

| |PDF (603 KB) | HTML

We report on a new principle yielding enhanced electromagnetic shielding, using as an example a composite comprised of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) integrated with a reactive ethylene terpolymer (RET). Such composites were synthesized through the chemical reaction of the functional groups on the CNT with the epoxy linkage of the RET polymer. The main advantages of these composites include good dispersi... View full abstract»

• ### One-Dimensional Surface Plasmon Photonic Crystal Slab (SPPCS) for a Nanophotodiode

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):470 - 473
| |PDF (637 KB) | HTML

For miniaturization of a photodiode, we present a new design concept to increase photogeneration rate in a small active domain by using subwavelength structures consisting of surface plasmon photonic crystal slab (SPPCS) acting like a near-field generator and an antireflection coating. The polarizability of rectangular metallic cylinder predicts surface plasmon (SP) resonance frequency in the SPPC... View full abstract»

• ### Theory of Nano-Electron-Fluidic Logic (NFL): A New Digital “Electronics” Concept

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):474 - 486
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| |PDF (567 KB) | HTML

A new digital “electronics” concept is introduced. The concept, called nano-electron-fluidic logic (NFL), is based on the generation, propagation, and manipulation of plasmons in a 2-D electron gas behaving as an electron fluid. NFL gates are projected to exhibit femtojoule power dissipations and femtosecond switching speeds at finite temperatures. NFL represents a paradigm shift in ... View full abstract»

• ### Direct Tip Shape Determination of a Berkovich Indenter: Effect on Nanomechanical Property Measurement and Description of a Worn Indenter

Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):487 - 493
Cited by:  Papers (5)
| |PDF (484 KB) | HTML

The minimization of sources of uncertainty in nanoindentation experiments is crucial for accurate determination of nanomechanical properties. A common source of uncertainty in these measurements is the estimation of tip shape and size. Besides the experimental determination of the indenter's real geometry, determination of the instrument's compliance is also necessary. We use an atomic-force-micro... View full abstract»

| |PDF (1122 KB) | HTML

Although a considerable amount of experimental and theoretical work has been devoted to nanoelectronic systems with molecular components, relatively little work has been done on molecular electronic devices on technologically relevant substrates such as silicon. Metal-molecule-semiconductor (MMS) studies have generally focused on structures in which the semiconductor barrier is dominant or treated... View full abstract»

• ### Design of New Logic Architectures Utilizing Optimized Suspended-Gate Single-Electron Transistors

Cited by:  Papers (1)
| |PDF (1129 KB) | HTML

The operation and performances of the suspended-gate single-electron transistor (SET) are investigated through simulation. The movable gate is 3-D optimized, so that low actuation voltage (0.4 V), fast switching (1 ns), and ultralow pull-in energy (0.015 fJ) are simulated. A two-state capacitor model based on the 3-D results is then embedded with a SET analytical model in a SPICE environment to in... View full abstract»

This paper describes the electromechanical behavior of carbon nanotube (CNT) turfs when a torque is applied. High aspect ratio (~3.83) cylindrical CNT turfs were grown by a three-zone temperature chemical vapor deposition (TZT-CVD). A distinctive apparatus is developed to apply a torque on the CNT turf and measure the torsional angle simultaneously. Electrical resistance of CNT turf can be recorde... View full abstract»
