Summary:
A team of UCLA chemists reports significant progress toward the creation of molecular computers with the first demonstration of a reconfigurable molecular switch that works in a solid state at room temperature - a breakthrough that solves one of the obstacles toward the creation of molecular computers that could be much cheaper, smaller and more efficient than today's silicon-based computers.
