Carbon Nanotube Devices: H-S Philip Wong

H-S Philip Wong discusses Carbon Nanotube Devices at 2014 Foresight Technical Conference: Integration

Early Registration ends 11/25 – Use promo code NANOBLOG for $100 off registration.

In October, Professor Wong along with colleagues at Stanford University published the development of a digital computer which uses carbon nanotubes as transistors. The team was able to integrate 142 carbon nanotube transistors into a multitasking computer programmable through a 20 instruction set. Professor Wong will relate the trials and triumphs in the integration strategy, as well as insight into other strategies for ultra small, high speed low power switching.

To put these accomplishments into perspective we need only look back to 2008 at which time the integration of five carbon nanotubes was cutting edge technology.
