Guided Growth of Nanowires Leads to Self-Integrated Circuits

July 31, 2013 2:49 pm | by Prof. Ernesto Joselevich, Weizmann Institute | Comments

Researchers working with tiny components in nanoelectronics face a challenge similar to that of parents of small children: teaching them to manage on their own. The nano-components are so small that arranging them with external tools is impossible. The only solution is to create conditions in which they can be “trusted” to assemble themselves.
