Nanowires Span Silicon Contacts

One challenge for researchers aiming to make electronics at the size-scale of molecules is finding ways to position and attach nanowires to the tiny components. Researchers from Hewlett-Packard Laboratories and have grown nanowires between electrodes that were made using common patterning techniques. Because the nanowires grow and connect automatically, the method promises to provide a relatively inexpensive way to mass-produce nanoelectronics.
