Possible revolution in transistor technology

Just saw this newsarticle posted on Slashdot and thought it was worthy of sharing here...

From the article: "A team from the University of Alberta has proven for the first time that a single molecule can switch electrical currents off and on, a puzzle that scientists worldwide have been trying to crack for decades.

The finding could revolutionize the field of electronics, providing a leap ahead for everything from computers to batteries to medical equipment."

Sounds very exciting, doesn't it?


The complete article is available in the June 2nd edition of Nature under the title "Field Regulation of Single Molecule Conductivity by a Charged Surface Atom". Will take a look at it once I'm on the McGill VPN, sounds interesting!
