In the Rapid Research Letter [1] carbon nanotube (CNT) molecular resonant tunnel diodes (RTD) are proposed to complement bio-assembled CNT field effect transistors. The cover figure is a schematic representation of a model CNT–pseudopeptide–CNT device in its relaxed structure with hydrogen passivation at the CNT ends. The device has been shown to exhibit the typical current–voltage response of an RTD.

The first author, Rajeev Pandey, works as a post-doctoral researcher in the Laboratory for Terascale and Terahertz Electronics, headed by Roger Lake, at Riverside.

The current issue of physica status solidi (a) also contains the Feature Article “On the growth mechanisms of nanocrystalline diamond films” by Wilhelm Kulisch and Cyril Popov [2].
