Atomic-scale computing, in which computer processes are carried out within a single molecule that does the work of several transistors, could reshape the microelectronics industry. In theory, atomic-scale computing could put devices more powerful than today's supercomputers into everyone's pockets. As head of the center's Nanoscience and Picotechnology Group, Christian Joachim's coordinating a team of researchers from 15 academic and industrial research institutions in Europe to work on developing a molecular replacement for transistors. His team's goal is to host a single gate within one molecule.
