Thousand in one electron

Scientists at Cambridge Universil UK, have announced prc _ developing "single electron logict to herald in chips with data-processing capacity of 1,000 PCs.

The principle behind this logicl that small and precise numbers electrons can be controllt form numerous information pri cessing functions. It builds on wo on "single electron memory" tified by Cambridge scienti Js 1993, which showed that one bit information could be stored byl single electron. That single-electroM devices could be made from silicoFM most widely used in semicondut tors, enhances the corin I potential of the invention.
