  • Wiring Up Silicon Surfaces One of the challenges in downsizing electronic circuits is maintaining low resistivity of wires, because shrinking their diameter to near atomic dimensions increases interface effects and can decrease the effectiveness of dopants. Weber et al. (p. 64; see the Perspective by Ferry) created nanowires on a silicon surface with the deposition of phosphorus atoms through decomposition of PH3 with a scanning tunneling microscope tip. A brief thermal annealing embedded these… CONTINUE READING
