Two-terminal nanotube devices including a nanotube bridge and methods of making same

Image Number 12 for United States Patent #8134220.

Nanotube switching devices having nanotube bridges are disclosed. Two-terminal nanotube switches include conductive terminals extending up from a substrate and defining a void in the substrate. Nantoube articles are suspended over the void or form a bottom surface of a void. The nanotube articles are arranged to permanently contact at least a portion of the conductive terminals. An electrical stimulus circuit in communication with the conductive terminals is used to generate and apply selected waveforms to induce a change in resistance of the device between relatively high and low resistance values. Relatively high and relatively low resistance values correspond to states of the device. A single conductive terminal and a interconnect line may be used. The nanotube article may comprise a patterned region of nanotube fabric, having an active region with a relatively high or relatively low resistance value. Methods of making each device are disclosed.
