For the development of the very high-speed high-density nanotechnology integrated circuits crucial for the practical realization of the nanocomputers with unlimited potential for the U.S. space program and the semiconductor industry, it is important to consider new nanoscale quantum devices and interconnections. Carbon nanotubes have emerged as a strong candidate for the interconnections for such next generation circuits. In this one-year research effort, we plan to carry out a feasibility study and identify the various research areas related to the application of carbon nanotubes for the nanotechnology integrated circuits and to lay down the foundation of a research program at Michigan Tech for the next ten years.
