Using tunneling microscopes and a single red phosphorous atom, researchers from The University of South Wales in Australia have been able to accurately create a single atom transistor – that is small.

Moore’s Law states, and has held basically true, that transistor density would double around every two years.  That pace is considered to be reaching a road block since current manufacturing technology is reaching it physical limits.

With atom level transistors the density and power for computing could be greatly increased.

These are early stage developments but the ability to precisely and accurately create the atom level transistor is very encouraging.
