Paper Abstract

Graphene rolled-up cylindrical sheets i.e. carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is one of the finest and emerging research area. This paper presents the investigation of induced crosstalk in coupled on-chip multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) interconnects using finite-difference analysis (FDA) in time-domain i.e. the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. The exceptional properties of versatile MWCNTs profess their candidacy to replace conventional on-chip copper interconnects. Time delay and crosstalk noise have been evaluated for coupled on-chip MWCNT interconnects. With a decrease in CNT length, the obtained results for an MWCNT shows that transmission performance improves as the number of shells increases. It has been observed that the obtained results using the finite-difference time domain (FDTD) technique shows a very close match with the HSPICE simulated results.
