Exploration of nanomaterials for future nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, sensors, and other applications has overwhelmingly focused on carbon nanotubes and more recently, graphene. Recently, a variety of one-dimensional inorganic nanowires have also been explored for a competitive avenue for many of these applications while being amenable to grow by CVD. Most of these nanowire materials have been used previously in the same applications as two dimensional thin films, but now in the one-dimensional form they provide quantum confinement, opportunities for bandgap engineering and exceptional surface quality. These properties and examples of nanowires will be shown first, followed by a discussion of nanowire based phase change memory as an effort towards the development of universal memory. Nanowires have also been used recently towards wearable electronics applications and some examples of e-textile will be presented. Recently paper has emerged as a viable substrate for electronics, sensors, batteries and other components and examples from our work will be given. Finally, we have recently fabricated nanoscale vacuum tubes using silicon technology and obtained frequency performance that exceeds state-of-the-art silicon devices. These vacuum transistors have the potential for THz electronics. The device physics, fabrication and results will be presented. The author thanks all past and present NASA Ames colleagues for their contributions to the application development efforts, especially Jin-Woo Han, Jing Li, Yujiang Lu, Jessica Koehne and Michael Oye.
Meyya Meyyappan is Chief Scientist for Exploration Technology at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA. Until June 2006, he served as the Director of the Center for Nanotechnology. He is a founding member of the Interagency Working Group on Nanotechnology (IWGN) established by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The IWGN is responsible for putting together the National Nanotechnology Initiative.
