ABSTRACT In this paper, high-performance back-gated carbon nanotube field-effect transistors based on transferred aligned carbon nanotubes were fabricated and studies found that the on/off ratio can reach 107 and the current density can reach 1.6 μ A /μ m after electrical breakdown. In addition, chemical doping with hydrazine was used to convert the p -type aligned nanotube devices into n -type. These devices were further utilized to demonstrate various logic circuits, including p -type metal-oxide-semiconductor inverters, diode-loaded inverters, complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor inverters, NAND, and NOR gates. This approach could work as the platform for future nanotube-based nanoelectronics.
