Electronic and Electro-Optic Nanotechnology*


Recent developments in the field of electronics and optical devices have resulted in advanced generations of instruments such as the scanning tunneling microscope that contributed to further developments in the nanoelectronic technology. Nanooptics or nanophotonics is mainly expected to play a complementary role to micro/nano electronics in chip development. The effect of metal size and the quantum nanostructure (increasing dimensions will increase the charge carriers’ movement) are the main components of the theory of electronic nanotechnology. Electro-optic technology, however, is based on controlling the crystal dimensions and the chemistry of their surfaces, which will contribute ...
