Keithley Offers Free Nanotechnology Handbook


CLEVELAND - Keithley Instruments, Inc. is releasing its Nanotechnology Measurement Handbook, a 124-page guide to electrical measurements for nanoscience applications. The handbook offers practical assistance in making precision low level DC and pulse measurements on nanomaterials and devices and provides an overview of the theoretical and practical considerations involved in measuring low currents, high resistances, low voltages, and low resistances. Itís useful as a reference and as an aid to understanding low level phenomena observed in the lab. The Nanotechnology Measurement Handbook is available for no charge at For High Resolution Image:

The handbook is divided into five main sections, and each section includes tutorials on making ultra-low voltage and low power measurements on nanoscale devices. Topics include:

Challenges inherent in testing nanoscale devices
Techniques for making electrical measurements on nanoscale materials
Making accurate low-current, low-power, and low-resistance measurements and recognizing potential sources of error
Electronic transport characteristics of gallium nitride nanocircuits
Tips for the electrical characterization of carbon nanotubes and low-power nanoscale devices
The handbook also includes four appendices, including a selector guide for choosing the appropriate nanotechnology solution, a glossary of commonly used terms, a discussion of safety considerations, and troubleshooting strategies.

Keithley Instruments is the world leader in the creation of electrical measurement solutions for nanotechnology. This important new area of research promises significant advances in electronics, materials, biotechnology, alternative energy sources, and dozens of other applications. With their unequalled performance, Keithley measurement tools enable nanotechnology researchers to observe phenomena that were impossible to measure just a few years ago. Unlocking secrets at the nanoscale level is accelerating the transition from nanotech research labs to commercial production.
