Through thin and thin

In September 2002, Hewlett-Packard's lead molecular scientist, Stan Williams, announced at a conference in Stockholm that the company had developed a molecular memory chip one square micron in size -- and the process to manufacture it. The news marked a big validation of the nanotechnology research that Williams and HP computer architect Phil Kuekes first started in 1996 at HP Labs. The tiny device they and their team created has more than 10 times the switches in current memory chips.
