Researchers at the National Institute for Nanotechnology (University of Alberta) have demonstrated for the first time that the charge of a single atom on a silicon surface can switch the conductivity of a nearby molecule. Robert Wolkow and his team’s demonstration bring nano electronics a leap forward into reality, as the technology moves hence forward with proof of a molecular transistor. [press release]
