The network may be a mixture of semiconducting and metallic nanotubes randomly tangled with each other through the printing process. The unique distribution of carbon nanotubes in a network can be used for authentication, and this feature can be a secret key for a high level hardware security. The carbon nanotube network does not require any advanced purification process, alignment of nanotubes, high-resolution lithography and patterning. Rather, the intrinsic randomness of carbon nanotubes is leveraged to provide the unclonable aspect.

  • Patent number: 11105979
    Abstract: Based on graphene heterostructure in chip-scale silicon nitride microresonators, optoelectronic control and modulation in frequency combs via group velocity dispersion modulation can be demonstrated. By tuning graphene Fermi level from 0.50 eV to 0.65 eV via electric-field gating, deterministic in-cavity group velocity dispersion control from anomalous (?62 fs2/mm) to normal (+9 fs2/mm) can be achieved with Q factor remaining high at 106. Consequently, both the primary comb lines and the full comb spectra can be controllable dynamically with the on/off switching of the Cherenkov radiation, the tuning of the primary comb lines from 2.3 THz to 7.2 THz, and the comb span control from zero comb lines to ˜781 phase-locked comb lines, directly via the DC voltage.

The MTJ stack is etched to form a MTJ structure wherein portions of sidewalls of the MTJ structure are damaged by the etching. Thereafter, the substrate is removed from an etching chamber wherein sidewalls of the MTJ structure are oxidized. A physical cleaning of the MTJ structure removes damaged portions and oxidized portions of the MTJ sidewalls. Thereafter, without breaking vacuum, an encapsulation layer is deposited on the MTJ structure and bottom electrode.
