Transistors Without Semiconductors Highlighted

MRS Spring 2014 highlightResearch work lead by Professor Yoke Khin Yap (Physics) has gained attention in the 2014 Materials Research Society (MRS) Spring Meeting at San Francisco, held on April 21-25, 2014. The presentation, “Transistors without Semiconductors: Tunneling Behavior of Boron Nitride Nanotubes Functionalized with Gold Quantum Dots”, presented in Symposium BB: Materials for End-of-Roadmap Devices in Logic, Power and Memory, was highlighted in the official website of MRS.

This work was conducted in collaboration with Professor John Jaszczak (Physics), Dr. Dongyan Zhang (Physics), physics graduate students Madhusudan Savaikar, Douglas Banyai, Boyi Hao (All in Physics), and collaborators from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
