Big step towards small wires

In a step towards the goal of shrinking electronic devices to the molecular scale, an international team of researchers has developed a stable silver wire that is just one atom wide.

Researchers from Fudan University in Shanghai, Japan’s National Institute for Materials Science and QUT’s Centre for Materials Science have published the study, Stable single atomic silver wires assembling into a circuitry-connectable nanoarray,  in the leading international journal Nature Communications.
