Scientists Create A One-Atom Transistor

Forbes: Physicists from the University of New South Wales have accomplished an incredible feat of engineering: they created a working transistor from a single atom of the phosphorous-31 isotope. Even more amazing, the scientists were able to position the transistor exactly where they needed it to be–within 10 nm.

Scientists say that one-atom transistors like these could eventually form the foundation for quantum computers.

The team of researchers published their findings in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
