Straining to make a transistor

The use of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as short-channel-length transistors will require control of their chirality, which determines whether they are semiconducting or metallic and if they form strong, low-resistance contacts. Tang et al . fabricated CNT intramolecular transistors by progressive heating and straining of individual CNTs within a transmission electron microscope. Changes to chirality along sections of the nanotube created metallic-to-semiconducting transitions. A semiconducting nanotube channel was covalently bonded to the metallic nanotube source and drain regions. The resulting CNT intramolecular transistors had channel lengths as short as 2.8 nanometers. —PDS
