AMBIT Corporation announces progress in Nanotube Switch application
Ashland, MA | Posted on April 28, 2006
Technology developer AMBIT Corporation (www.ambitcorp.com) announced today that it has made significant progress in a key area of its carbon nanotube technology platform that will enable a new class of nano-scaled devices such as switches and on-chip memory, according to company co-founder Robert J. Crowley. "AMBIT Corporation's carbon nanotubes are microscopic actuators on a computer chip and they have a number of important uses" said Crowley. "We realized that the nanotubes are influenced by fields, such as electrostatic fields, and even though the tubes themselves are stiff, practical field strengths are sufficient to cause the nanotubes to move, or bend, when a signal is applied." Crowley envisions that the first commercialization of the company's patented and patent-pending technology will be in switching and memory applications, where the high density and controllability of the company's proprietary carbon nanotube-on-silicon process is already largely compatible with conventional chip manufacturing processes.
