Overview: Molecular electronics insertion strategy; Active atom wire interconnects Keeping the initial target application simple, cheap and unsophisticated: passive interconnects Initial products will be silicon complements with response time of the order of second: sensors Moving on to active devices, with novel function, form, or cost advantage Finally; introducing entirely new generation of products: commercial delivery time of more than one decade Molecular Electronics J.M.
