  • The tremendous pace in the development of information technology is rapidly approaching a limit. Alternative materials and operating princlples for the elaboration and communication of data in electronic circults and optical networks must be identified. Organic molecules are promising candidates for the realization of future digital processors. Their attractive features are the miniaturized dimensions and the high degree of control on molecular design possible in chemical synthesis. Indeed… CONTINUE READING
