Molecular Electronics: The Experimentalist's View

Authors: R. Tsui

Affilation: Motorola, United States

Pages: 308 - 309

Keywords: molecular electronics, nanotubes, synthetic molecules, DNA

In the last few years, significant experimental advances have been achieved in the utilization of nanoscale molecular components for electronic applications. A variety of materials, including carbon nanotubes, custom-synthesized organic molecules, metallic nanoparticles, and biological molecules, have been used to build devices and simple circuits that demonstrate switching, logic and memory functions. These represent important steps in the development of molecular electronics as a possible solution to roadblocks in conventional scaling. Some of these advances are reviewed, and related topics in which complementary research in computational science can bring improved understanding or enhancements in experimental techniques are suggested.
