Carbon nanotube is predicted as the most promising carbon nanostructure for future digital electronic application due to its superior electrical characteristics. One of the examples is the employment of CNT in fieldeffect transistor. Carbon nanotube field-effect transistors (CNFET) are extensively studied as a possible replacement for silicon MOSFET. Simulation study of ballistic transport of CNFET is carried out in this paper as a mean to measure performance limit of this device. I-V characteristic of ballistic CNFET is simulated through MATLAB program using surface-potentialbased model. The simulation result is presented and then compared with current silicon transistor technology. It is found that CNFET is comparable to silicon MOSFET
