One-dimensional nanowires are the world's thinnest, at one atom wide

The world's thinnest nanowires are made by injecting tellurium into carbon nanotubes, constricting them into a ...

While it's generally held true since the 1960s, Moore's Law – the observation that the number of transistors on a single chip doubles every two years or so – can only last so long. Researchers at Cambridge and the University of Warwick have jumped ahead to its logical endpoint and shrunk wires down to a string of single atoms. Effectively one-dimensional, these "extreme nanowires" are made of tellurium, compressed inside carbon nanotubes to keep them stable.
