INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTIONNanotechnology is a highly multidisciplinary field that involves the control of matter at the nanometer dimensional size scale. The ability to control atoms and molecules to form materials and products is an extremely alluring and fascinating concept because it promises the ability to make much better products and services with enormous economic potential, improved standards of living, and healthier citizens. The scientific community has recognized the importance of nanotechnology and has advocated for governments around the world to invest billions of dollars to advance and develop this technology. One area of technology with nanometer-sized dimensions already having an enormous impact on society is integrated circuits (ICs). The important dimensions of the transistor devices have steadily sh…
