Title: Quantum Dots used to 'Draw' Circuits for Molecular Computers of the Future
Url: http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/article/5284
Publisher: University of California, Los Angeles.
Description: UCLA describes the combined research of chemists and engineers to use quantum dots as an inexpensive means of creating nanoscale circuitry for molecular computers of the future. Users can learn how the particles' photocatalytic properties make them a great candidate for improving the current method of creating interconnecting lines on silicon chips.
