Hybrid nano-wires provide link to silicon

Abstract:
Nanoscale electronic components that could be plugged into conventional computer circuits have been developed for the first time by US chemists. Nanoscopic electronic wires have already been made in the laboratory, often using exotic materials such as carbon nanotubes. However, to be of practical use, such components will need to be connected to larger electronic components. And existing electronics are usually made with silicon, which cannot easily be connected to nanotubes.
