Effects of short range forces on a three-terminal nanorelay
Conference contribution, 2003

We have performed a theoretical analysis of the operational characteristics of a carbon-nanotube-based three-terminal nanorelay. In the present study we focus on introducing short range forces into the model. We show is that these forces have a significant impact on the characteristics of the relay. We also investigate the nanorelay as a memory element, and conclude that this is a promising application.
