Silicon-based transistors and circuits are just too big, say a small group of researchers in the new field of nanoelectronics. To create electronic devices far smaller than those currently available, researchers are turning to single, electron-conducting molecules or small groups of metal atoms. The effort has received support from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in the United States and from the European Commission abroad.
