Switching with molecules

Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have used a single molecule to switch light signals. The TUM-developed molecules can be switched between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. Such nanoswitches can serve as the basis for a class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules. Switching with just a single molecule brings ...
