overview how it works future applications for researchers

As the electronic circuits on computer chips become smaller and smaller, conventional transistors run into physical limitations caused by extreme miniaturization. Nanotubes hold the promise of creating novel devices, such as carbon-based single-electron transistors, that will allow the miniaturization to continue beyond the limits of current silicon-based device technology. IBM scientists are now examining the basic properties of carbon Nanotubes and the feasibility of using them as the basis for a new class of nanoelectronic devices.
