Scientists cook up 1-atom transistor, 12-atom magnetic storage

from Daily Tech

Two impressive discoveries were reported over the last week that illustrate that while optical die-shrinks may be getting long in the tooth, circuit technology may have a ways to go before reaching intrinsic atom-scale barriers. The first discovery was announced by the University of New South Wales' Center for Quantum Computer Technology and Purdue University, who claim to have made substantial progress in the commercialization of 1-atom transistors. While not the first 1-atom transistor observed, the group claims it is the first to create the tiny picometer transistor purposefully and reliably, allowing verifiable results, versus past accidental discoveries. more
