Abstract:The research presented herein is based on the fabrication and transport properties of nanometer-scale devices in silicon. The most promising of these structures are nanowires fabricated with a scanning tunneling microscope (STM). These high-density nanowires display the low-temperature phenomena of weak localization and one-dimensional conduction. Long-term applications of such nanowires and derivative devices include alternatives to conventional CMOS transistors and very sensitive charge and/or spin-detection devices. In addition, focused ion beams (FIBs) have been used to directly and precisely implant ions in the hope that they may be used to contact nanodevices, but surface damage may preclude that possibility.
