Architectures for molecular electronic computers. I. Logic structures and an adder designed from molecular electronic diodes

  title={Architectures for molecular electronic computers. I. Logic structures and an adder designed from molecular electronic diodes},
  author={J. C. Ellenbogen and J. C. Love},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
Recently, there have been significant advances in the fabrication and demonstration of individual molecular electronic wires and diode switches. This paper reviews those developments and shows how demonstrated molecular devices might be combined to design molecular-scale electronic digital computer logic. The design for the demonstrated rectifying molecular diode switches is refined and made more compatible with the demonstrated wires through the introduction of intramolecular dopant groups… CONTINUE READING
