Drexel University researchers and their colleagues are one step closer to making personal electronic devices even smaller. Pioneering studies there demonstrate that it is possible to manipulate carbon nanotubes in a manner that could allow researchers to furnish them with multiple transistors, a difficult task that, to date, has not been successfully achieved; but one that is necessary for future miniaturization of electronic devices.
