A simple method was found to grow 4 cm long CNTs, which will enable heigh-strength and light-weight materials in prictical applications. These long CNTs are almost defect-free along the entire length. giving a bright future [...]
Vertically grown carbon nanotubes have the potential for tera-level Integration. However, the well-known ambipolar behavior limits the performance of carbon nanotube field effect transistors. In this work we demonstrate that a double gate structure effectively [...]
