Technology Review: Complex Integrated Circuits Made of Carbon Nanotubes

Technology Review: Complex Integrated Circuits Made of Carbon Nanotubes.

The first three-dimensional carbon nanotube circuits, made by researchers at Stanford University, could be an important step in making nanotube computers that could be faster and use less power than today’s silicon chips. Such a computer is still at least 10 years off, but the Stanford work shows it is possible to make stacked circuits using carbon nanotubes. Stacked circuits cram more processing power in a given area, and also do a better job dissipating waste heat.
