Bigger things from smaller packages

Abstract:
The work being done on nanotubes and their possible incorporation into electrical circuits is still in its infancy, but if scientists are ultimately successful, their work would revolutionize the computer industry and transform our daily lives in ways that only be imagined today. Creating and manipulating something as small as a nanotube is a highly demanding process that requires a great deal of technical knowledge, skill and patience. Using nanotubes to build even the most primitive electronic circuits is painstaking work that frequently isn't successful.

(Ed.'s note: "carbon nanotubes, which each measure approximately 10 nanometres in diameter." Actually, CNT diameter vary greatly, and are not limited to 10 nm. "The tubes are created in the lab by manipulating a "sheet" of graphite atoms so it rolls over onto itself and forms a cylinder." More precisely, when CNT's are created, they appear to look like rolled chicken wire.)
