John Markoff writes in the New York Times: https://ibm.biz/Bdxzad I.B.M. Reports Nanotube Chip Breakthrough I.B.M.
scientists are reporting progress in a chip-making technology that is
likely to ensure that the basic digital switch at the heart of modern
microchips will continue to shrink for more than a decade. The
advance, first described in the journal Nature Nanotechnology on
Sunday, is based on carbon nanotubes — exotic molecules that have long
held out promise as an alternative to silicon from which to create the... [More]
