Now, transistors without semiconductors

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

 A team of scientists have figured out how to make virtual carpets of boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT), which happen to be insulators and thus highly resistant to electrical charge.

Using lasers, researchers placed quantum dots (QDs) of gold as small as three nanometers across on the tops of the BNNTs, forming QDs-BNNTs. BNNTs are the perfect substrates for these quantum dots due to their small, controllable, and uniform diameters, as well as their insulating nature. BNNTs confine the size of the dots that can be deposited.
