Heath team at UCLA reports advance in nanotube molectronics

Not content with the collaborative work with HP Labs that recently earned a molecular electronics patent (see Nanodot post from 24 January 2002), UCLA chemistry professor and California NanoSystems Institute researcher James Heath and his coworkers have announced an advance in using crossed arrays of carbon nanotubes to form molecular electronic circuits. The research was published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, v41, pp 353 – 356 (18 January 2002). A summary of the report appeared on the Nature Science Update website ("Cylinders make circuits spontaneously: Carbon nanotubes assemble themselves into electronic grids", by Philip Ball, 29 January 2002).
