Making mountains out of molecules

Abstract:
An average day for Phaedon Avouris involves delving into questions about the basic behaviour of matter. As the manager of nanoscale science and technology at IBM Research, Mr. Avouris is in charge of IBM's research into designing chips, storage devices and other systems out of strands of molecules. Among other breakthroughs, the group has concocted carbon nanotube transistors as well as techniques for creating nanotubes.
