Low-resistance Connections Aid Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes For Interconnects
2012-10-31 08:11:12

Georgia Institute of Technology Research News Hybrid electronics Using a new method for precisely controlling the deposition of carbon, researchers have demonstrated a technique for connecting multi-walled carbon nanotubes to the metallic pads of integrated circuits without the high interface resistance produced by traditional fabrication techniques. Based on electron beam-induced deposition (EBID), the work is believed to be the first to connect multiple shells of a multi-walled...
