Introduction Jia Chen IBM Yorktown Heights, New York Victor Zhirnov SRC Research Triangle Park, North Carolina This section focuses on integrating novel nanoscale materials and devices, circuit concepts, and sensor functionalities to develop new technologies for infor- mation processing. New concepts for devices, fabrication techniques, and system architectures are emerging from research in nanotechnologies. Many new ideas have been proposed for post-CMOS technologies, such as molecular electronics, carbon nanotube devices, spin devices, and so on. Most likely, the full potential of these new developments will only be realized in com- bination with new nanoarchitectures that integrate alternative electronic devices onto a silicon platform. The papers in this section describe work on new emerging nanoelectronic devices and materials. 43
