Electronics and optoelectronics with carbon nanotubes

Today, the electronics industry is producing MOSFETs with critical dimensions of about 100 nm, and projections anticipate devices with minimum-feature sizes of around 50 nm in the year 2009. However, the industry generally expects that within a decade or so, it will encounter critical technological barriers and fundamental physical limitations to size reduction. At IBM, we have concentrated our efforts on evaluating the potential of carbon nanotubes as the basis of a future nanoelectronics technology.
