The paper investigates the EMC behavior of carbon nanotube interconnects, which are candidate to replace copper in future nanoscale technology. In particular, two problems are addressed: the influence of the kinetic inductance on the high-frequency behavior and the crosstalk performances of such interconnects. A recently proposed model is used to describe these interconnects within the frame of the classical transmission line theory, while retaining the necessary accuracy in describing the typical quantistic and inertial effects involved at such a scale.

Abstract

The paper investigates the EMC behavior of carbon nanotube interconnects, which are candidate to replace copper in future nanoscale technology. In particular, two problems are addressed: the influence of the kinetic inductance on the high-frequency behavior and the crosstalk performances of such interconnects. A recently proposed model is used to describe these interconnects within the frame of the classical transmission line theory, while retaining the necessary accuracy in describing the typical quantistic and inertial effects involved at such a scale.
