Abstract: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are solid potential substitutes for silicon in VLSI due to their remarkable abilities. We review the concept of operation of CNT - based FETs (CNFETs), the issues with respect to its cutting modern manufacture methods, execution parameters yielded by the most recent research; lastly, we show an outline of a few applications utilizing the special properties of these devices.

Keywords: CNFET, CNT, CMOS
