Paper Abstract

We are pursuing several projects aimed at developing carbon-based nanodevices for sensing, actuation, and nanoelectronics applications. In one project, we are seeking to fabricate and characterize carbon nanotube quantum dots (CNT-QDs) with potential application as future electronic memories with high-performance, bandwidth, and throughput. In a second effort, we have used pulsed laser deposition (PLD) to create thermal bimorph nanoactuators based on multi-wall nano tubes (MWNTs) coated on one side with a thin metal film. Lastly, graphene materials are being studied to investigate its field emission properties for vacuum electronics and to exploit its differential conductivity. These devices have potential in a wide range of applications including sensors, detectors, system-on-a-chip, system-in-a-package, programmable logic controls, energy storage systems and all-electronic systems.
