Pursuit of a small tech building block goes down to the nanowire

Abstract:
When is a wire more than a wire? When you add the "nano" prefix, of course. On one level, "nanowire" is a literal term: a channel for electrons or photons no wider than a few thousand atoms. As electronic components shrink closer to the size of biological cells or molecules, such wires may eventually need to replace the strands of metal that interconnect circuits today.
