Research Topic

Semiconductor nanowires can be formed directly by using the so-called bottom-up approach. In contrast to the usual top-down method where optical or electron beam lithography is employed, this approach has the potential to simply the fabrication of low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures enormously.

What alternatives are there to present computers based on crystals of silicon or other semiconductors? What is – from a physical point of view – the smallest possible device that can be used to perform computational processes? Is there a minimum amount of energy required for floating point operations?
