05/04: Philips and the Dutch University of Groningen demonstrate an important discovery in the manufacture of molecular electronic systems

Scientists from Philips Research and the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) have, for the first time, manufactured molecular diode arrays on standard substrates with high yields.

Molecular diodes are as fine as a molecule (1.5 nm), and are ideal for integration into standard plastic electronic circuits. Based on the construction principles known as molecular self-organization, molecular electronics is a promising new approach to electronic circuit manufacturing in addition to today's conventional semiconductor processing.

More details of this technology are included in the May 4, 2006 issue of the journal Nature (Vol. 440, No. 7089).
