Random chip structures to reduce manufacturing cost

A new chip-making technique developed by researchers at three U.S. universities could help lower the cost of future chips by replacing transistors with wires made from gold atoms and organic molecules that connect randomly placed structures, the team announced Monday. “The team created working microelectronic systems called nanocells by submersing a silicon chip with disordered gold deposits into a solution of organic molecules and applying an electric current to the solution.”
