Faster circuits go for gold

Creating tiny golden images in blocks of glass might seem like the latest in up-market jewellery design. But the technique could lead to a new generation of electronics. One route to faster computing is to increase the number of connections between components in a circuit. But computer chip manufacturers are fast running out of room on conventional, flat circuit boards. So for the next generation of chips, the only way is up.
