Nanowire Project at the University of Cambridge
The goal of the Nanowire Project is to establish the necessary techniques and knowledge basis to push the width of interconnects on ICs (Integrated Circuits) beyond 100 nm. It has been recognised that the metallic lines connecting active devices on a chip will play a decisive role in determining the functionality and reliability of future ICs. Also part of this project is to study molecular systems which might also be used as interconnects or even as devices.
