Nanochips that may make themselves

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin have demonstrated a technique that may one day allow electronic devices to assemble themselves automatically-giving semiconductor manufacturers a way to mass-produce fairly inexpensive nanochips with elements only a few molecules wide, roughly a tenth the size of features in current chips. "In terms of storage alone, that could mean a computer with 4,000 gigabytes of memory," said Juan de Pablo, a member of the research team.
