Researchers Create Working Transistor Out of Single Atom:
Researchers have created a working transistor out of a single phosphorus atom and in the process have shown that Moore’s Law, the cornerstone of the semiconductor industry, might hold true much longer than anyone expected.
To make their tiny transistor, the group, which was led by Michelle Simmons, a researcher at the University of New South Wales, in Australia, bathed silicon in phosphine gas. They then used a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and a technique common in lithography to replace one silicon atom in a six-atom lattice with a phosphorus atom.
“Controlling a chemical reaction so that just one phosphorus atom was introduced into the device was challenging,” says Simmons.
When the team—which also included researchers from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information, Purdue University, and the universities of Sydney and Melbourne—applied a voltage across the phosphorus atom, it behaved like a transistor, switching and amplifying an electrical current.

byway: I have a full time job designing and making signage but I’m still technically an apprentice so every so often I get given tasks by my College, and the last one they gave me was to design and make a decorative wooden panel.
The College provided the wood, which we weren’t allowed to change the dimensions of, and the panel had to be hung vertically and also given a function.
These photos were taken before I’d actually finished making it (afterwards I added the rest of the girders and some black hooks so that the panel could be used as a key rack) and although the task was pretty pointless because it didn’t teach me anything, I’m pretty pleased with what I made. Especially seeing as I only made it in one afternoon without really planning it out.
As requested, here ya go :)
So I made these for anypony who would like them.
