Scientists Test Molecular Transistor
Anonymous Reader writes "A major step forward on the road to molecular electronics has been taken by scientists at the University of Alberta. "Researchers from the University of Alberta and the National Institute for Nanotechnology of the National Research Council have shown, for the first time, that a single charged atom on a silicon surface can regulate the conductivity of a nearby molecule. This breakthrough could pave the way for the creation of tiny computers - thousands of times more powerful than conventional technology allows.""
