Molecule by Molecule, NC State Scientists Design a New Transistor

Abstract:
When amazing new computers and other electronic devices emerge, they will have been conceived and incubated in university laboratories like that of Dr. Chris Gorman, professor of chemistry at North Carolina State University. There, the scientist and his multidisciplinary team are working to build, molecule by molecule, a nanoscale transistor. Thats an electronic switch so small it can only be seen with a high-tech device called a scanning tunneling microscope. And if you go to the library to find the how-to book, says Gorman, most of the pages will be blank, because nobody yet knows how to do it.
