Spin doctors make something from nothing

Abstract:
Electronic devices are always shrinking in size but itís hard to imagine anything beating what researchers at the University of New South Wales have created: a tiny wire that doesnít even use electrons to carry a current. Known as a hole quantum wire, it exploits the gaps Ė or holes - between electrons: unlike in a conventional electrical wire, the current flows in the absence of electrons.
