Molecular Transistors: The Effects of Test Molecules on the Conduction Patterns of a Lithium Nanowire

About the Scholar: Isaac Ick grew up in the United States and attended Dobyns-Bennett High School in Kingsport, Tennessee

The Research:

Since transistors were first invented, they have consistently become smaller, allowing computers to process increasingly large amounts of information ever more quickly. The limit of miniaturization using current materials has nearly been reached, and today’s major field of study is the identification of new materials that will permit continued development of faster computational times. Isaac’s experiments, described in this paper, added different molecules to lithium nanowires to test their properties at different voltages. His results were promising, indicating the potential for creating a new generation of molecular transistors with fourteen times the computational power possible at the moment.

Project Title

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
