 Carbon nanotube
A tube made from a sheet of graphite (the same material used in pencils) that has been wrapped into a cylinder. As its name implies, the diameter of a nanotube ranges from 1 to 10 nanometers, while its length is several thousand times longer than its diameter. These have superior physical properties, including tough mechanical strength, chemical stability, high thermal conductivity, low resistance, high aspect ratio, and high allowable current density.
The electromotive force induced by changes in the electrical current running through a metal.
A protruding electrode on the surface of a semiconductor chip, formed through an evaporation method, plating method, or printing method.
 A level much higher than that of metal
The conductivity of copper is approximately 400 W/(m-K), whereas gold has a conductivity of approximately 300 W/(m-K).
