Abstract

Planar two-electrode nonlinear elements using carbon nanotubes doped with platinum metals are created and investigated. Among the nanotubes, branched ones are found. If doped, these nanotubes take a regular form. With appropriate doping, limiting currents above 1 μA are achieved. However, the problem of contact between carbon nanotubes and electrodes has yet to be solved.
