GE’s new itsy-bitsy device

Scientists at General Electric Co. unveiled one of the smallest functioning devices ever made Wednesday, a carbon tube about 10 atoms wide that could one day shrink computer chip technology.
Researchers at GE’s central lab in Niskayuna, N.Y., hope that their new device, which is a rolled-up sheet of carbon atoms resembling chicken wire, will someday operate as the standard semiconductor in computers and other electronics.
