Keithley announces a Nanotech Toolkit, a set of measurement software tools designed for a variety of tests common to nanotechnology researchers to assist them in making the electrical measurements associated with nanotechnology. The toolkit and its software routines are available at no charge and are compatible with Keithley's model 4200-SCS Semiconductor Characterization System. The toolkit is designed to shortcut many measurement tasks by providing common routines typically used in testing nanotech devices. Included in the Nanotech Toolkit are icons that represent Model 4200-SCS measurement routines for testing a carbon nanotube-based transistor, a bio-component, a molecular transistor, a molecular wire, a nanowire, and a nanocell. The toolkit is distributed on a CD, which also contains a collection of relevant white papers, application notes, data sheets, and a seminar on making nanotech electrical measurements.
