Nanocircuits are electrical circuits operating on the nanometer scale. This is well into the quantum realm, where quantum mechanical effects become very important. One nanometer is equal to 10−9 meters or a row of 10 hydrogen atoms. With such progressively smaller circuits, more can be fitted on a computer chip. This allows faster and more compl...

nanocircuit, nanocircuitry A computer circuit built on a single and assembled on a single carbon nanotube. The circuit is one-fifth the width of a human hair and can only be viewed under an electron microscope. The circuit is not designed to be used in a computer chip; instead, it is a proof of the principle that allowed the research team to test...
