Nanoelectronics promises to improve, amplify, and partially substitute for the well-known field of microelectronics. The prefix micro denotes one millionth and, as applied to electronics, it is used to indicate that the characteristic sizes of the smallest features of a conventional electronic device have length scales of approximately a micrometer. The prefix nano denotes one billionth. Thus, in nanoelectronics the dimensions of the devices should be as many as a thousand times smaller than ...
