Summary

TOKYO-- Physicist Kunio Takayanagi of the Tokyo Institute of Technology has calculated that electrons should pass through the 1-nanometer gold wires he has crafted at speeds several orders of magnitude faster than those at which they pass through larger wires. If such wires could be fashioned into circuits, they could set the stage for even faster supercomputers.
