UCLA Explores Quantum Dots for Nanoscale Circuitry

UCLA researchers are developing a method of producing nanoscale circuitry for the molecular computers of the future that will use molecular switches in place of transistors. The method uses tiny quantum dots to create trails of altered molecules, which represents a drastic departure from the current lithographic method of creating interconnecting lines on silicon chips.
