Carbon nanotube-based ultra-low voltage integrated circuits may extend Moore’s law

June 24, 2012

Carbon nanotube-based integrated circuits can work with a supply voltage much lower than that used in conventional silicon integrated circuits, researchers from Peking University and Duke University have demonstrated

Low supply voltage circuits produce less heat, a key limiting factor for increased circuit density.┬áSo carbon-nanotube integrated circuits promise to extend Moore’s Law by allowing more transistors to fit onto a single chip without overheating.
