Theory of Nanoscale Material       


Physics Accomplishment | 2002

IBM researchers: Jerry D. Tersoff, James B. Hannon, Rudolph M. Tromp

Where the work was done: IBM T.J. Watson Research Center

What we accomplishedTheoretical work at IBM has revolutionized our understanding of nanoscale materials and structures in three distinct fields: carbon nanotube electronics, growth of epitaxial semiconductor quantum dots, and the growth of semiconductor nanowires.
