Nano-scale technologies have gained significant attention in various industries, including the nuclear field, due to their unique properties and potential benefits such as miniaturization and improved performance, radiation-hardened electronics, sensors, and detectors. This paper studies the performance of the different nano-scale technologies in electronic elements fabrication using the different Full Adder (FA) circuits with respect to different realizing methods. Four main parameters; delay time, consumed power, simplicity of hardware (number of transistors), and Power Delay Product (PDP) have been used for evaluating the different FA circuits efficiency in 45nm and 65 nm nanotechnologies and utilizing the Complementary Pass-Transistor Logic (CPL), Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (C-MOS), Full-Swing Gate Diffusion Input (FS-GDI) hybrid approaches. The experiments are carried out using a simulator package (Cadence Virtuoso) for 65nm nanotechnology. The results revealed the performance of the FA circuits at the lower nanoscale performed better than the higher nanoscale. C-MOS approaches provide better improvement in the 45 nm technology compared to the 65 nm technology and the other realizing approaches.
