Abstract: We experimentally investigate the effects of Co-60 irradiation on the electrical properties of single-walled carbon nanotube and graphene field-effect transistors. We observe significant differences in the radiation response of devices depending on their irradiation environment, and confirm that, under controlled conditions, standard dielectric hardening approaches are applicable to carbon nanoelectronics devices.
Keywords: single walled carbon nanotubes; graphene; total ionizing dose; TID; radiation hardening; FET; SWCNT; carbon nanoelectronics
