EurekAlert: High-speed nanotube transistors could lead to better cell phones, faster computers

From ACS Press Release 4/27/04
"Scientists have demonstrated, for the first time, that transistors made from single-walled carbon nanotubes can operate at extremely fast microwave frequencies...The findings, reported in the April issue of Nano Letters, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, add to mounting enthusiasm about nanotechnology's revolutionary potential. 'Since the invention of nanotube transistors, there have been theoretical predictions that they can operate very fast,' says Peter Burke, Ph.D., a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Irvine, and lead author of the paper. 'Our work is the first to show that single-walled nanotube transistor devices can indeed function at very high speeds.' "
