UCI Researchers Receive DARPA Grant

Abstract:
UC Irvine researchers Peter Burke and William Tang have recently been awarded a $300,000 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop high-frequency electronic devices based on nanotubes, a new type of wire made of carbon and measuring just a few atoms in thickness. The size of transistors used in technology today is approximately 130 to 180 nanometers. A nanometer is one billionth of a meter, about the size of 10 atoms across.
