U.K. Researchers Try to Reverse Molecular Transistor Failures

Researchers in the U.K. are attempting to make a molecular transistor, against a background of international failure. "Molecular transistors are a graveyard of reputations," project leader Professor Colin Lambert told Electronics Weekly. "Even controllably attaching molecules to electrodes in a reproducible way has not been achieved anywhere." Starting this summer, Lambert's Lancaster University, with University of Durham, Cranfield University and QinetiQ, will begin a four-year program partially funded by the U.K. research councils.
