**MOTIVATION: Why CNTFET?**

Dennard Scaling might not last long Increased performance by better algorithms? More parallelism? Alternatives to CMOS - FinFETs, Ge-nanowire FET, Si-nanowire FET, wrap-around gate MOS, graphene ribbon FET What about an inherently faster and less power consuming device?

Removal of m-CNTFETs VMR Technique : A special layout called VMR structure consisting of inter-digitated electrodes at minimum metal pitch is fabricated. M-CNT electrical breakdown performed by applying high voltage all at once using VMR. M-CNTs are burnt out and unwanted sections of VMR are later removed. Using Thermal and Fluidic Process: Preferential thermal desorption of the alkyls from the semiconducting nanotubes and further dissolution of m-CNTs in chloroform. Chemical Etching: Diameter dependent etching technique which removes all m-CNTs below a cutoff diameter. 04/29/2014
