Due to some poor editing, there are a number of errors in the discussion.
As far as we can tell, the data used for actual calculations is correct,
but some of the example calculations given and one of the equations could
We apologies if these errors make the paper more difficult to read.
- P. 222, column 2, under equation 30.
It should say:
Pcw=0.952 x 0.99992899=0.68
As written it raises to the 28990 power. The actual calculation is
formulated in terms of junctions, and there is one junction every 10nm.
So, the 28.99 micron wire has 28990nm and 2899 junctions.
- P. 222, column 2, later in the same paragraph as the above item:
The text incorrectly states d=...=185.
The conclusion N_cdata=625 is still correct.
The error was in the simple addition.
- P. 226, Equation 46. The left hand side should be
Ncyield-Nccdata, so that we have:
The calculation is correct in the computer code which
calculated the plots, so this is simply a presentation
- P. 226, paragraph (example) following equation 46.
Ncdata=185. Reference  provides
a [264,199,17] code which would provide Ncdata=199.
This still illustrates the intended point that the Gilbert
Bound used is conservative compared to achieveable codes.
