Nano chat: It seems Nanotechnology might one day help revolutionise global communications

Abstract:
For a start, in the Faculty of Science at The University of New South Wales in Sydney, researchers reckon they may have nailed a way to enter a whole new world of computer power. That means a new insight into how the internet might drag communications into its next evolution. Or how telecommunications might be run by legions of self automated machines.

The researchers have made, ‘The world's smallest precision built transistor - a ‘quantum dot' of just seven atoms in a single silicon crystal. Despite its incredibly tiny size - a mere four billionths of a metre long - the quantum dot is a functioning electronic device, the world's first created deliberately by placing individual atoms.'
