Abstract

It is widely recognized that the holy grail for nanolectronics is a technology that is compatible with standard silicon. We review the current prospects for the development of such a technology. We will discuss the current prospects for Si based heterojunctions including SiGeC, CaF2, CeO2, SiO2 and ZnS to name just a few. Further, we review the status of one device structures, the tunnel switched diode, which can currently be deployed in a number of applications.
