Researchers create world’s smallest transistor

A team of U.S. researchers announced Thursday they had succeeded in creating the world’s smallest transistor, breaking what had previously been perceived an insurmountable barrier in transistor size. The experimental device, which has a functional 1-nanometer gate, was built using carbon nanotubes...
