Thanks to recent discoveries, chemistry and technology will be able to explore new paths. Some scientists claim that fulerene transistors will facilitate the future of nanoconcators. Researchers from Switzerland and France claim that a unique and tiny fulerene can be used as an amplifier transistor. They consider that in the future Fulerenes will greatly facilitate electronic mechanisms.
The first step of the process would be to constantly tighten the isolated fulerene to apply an alternating voltage of 10 millivolts on an electric glass, which should be incorporated to one end of the microscope. At the end of the process, fulerene would measure 0.1 nanometers.
Researchers have shown great hope and believe that tiny electronic components can be used in very small circuits. This will allow to manufacture supercomputers of very small size.
