Research Institution
As the sophistication of the modern electronics grows, there is an interest in developing wide band gap semiconductor and molecular electronics. In the past a few years, many studies were conducted to research the feasibility of using Single-Walled and Multi-Walled Nanotubes as molecular electronic devices. Theoretical calculation and modeling indicated that Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) exhibit both metallic and semiconductor characteristics. While great advances have been made in recent years, fabricating CNT based devices involves low yield deposition and lengthy purification process, which makes molecular electronics virtually impossible.
