Nanowire-based one-dimensional electronics
Summary, in English
During the last half century, a dramatic downscaling of electronics has taken place, a miniaturization that the industry expects to continue for at least a decade. We present efforts to use the self-assembly of one-dimensional semiconductor nanowires(1) in order to bring new, high-performance nanowire devices as an add-on to mainstream Si technology. The nanowire approach offers a coaxial gate-dielectric-channel geometry that is ideal for further downscaling and electrostatic control, as well as heterostructure-based devices on Si wafers.
