Carbon nanotubes have many emerging technological uses, from strengthening lightweight composite materials to reducing voltage requirements in field-emission displays. Companies such as IBM and Intel have substantial research efforts aimed at the more complex task of building transistors and computer processors from nanotubes. Research under this proposal addresses one of the important requirements for achieving that vision understanding and modifying electron flow in one-dimensional systems carbon nanotubes by local gating, to create transistors. By agreement with the program officer, this effort was broadened to explore electron flow in other 1D conductors semiconductor nanowires and electronic states in other carbon nanomaterials graphene.
