Discovery - Video
Animation showing an artist's conception of a carbon nanotube synapse.

The animation shows an artist's conception of a carbon nanotube synapse. The orange nanotubes are PMOS transistors (metal-oxide-field effect transistors with material containing an excess of holes) and the green nanotubes are NMOS transistors (metal-oxide-field effect transistors with material containing an excess of electrons). The red features are metallic interconnections and transistor gates, and the blue features are metallic interconnections.
