Molecular memories, once doubted, prove durable and practical

Abstract:
In the ongoing quest to create computing devices that are both incredibly small and incredibly powerful, scientists envisioning a future beyond the limits of traditional semiconductors have been working to use molecules for information storage and processing. Until now, researchers were skeptical that such molecular devices could survive the rigors of real-world manufacturing and use, which involve high temperatures and up to one trillion operational cycles. But scientists at the University of California, Riverside and North Carolina State University have demonstrated that molecular memories are indeed both durable and practical a finding that could spur development of the technology.
