Molecular Electronics

Definition - What does Molecular Electronics mean?

Molecular electronics refers to the subdivision of nanotechnology and nanoelectronics that is responsible for electronics development and design using nano building blocks. All modern fabrication of integrated circuits and electronic devices is possible due to advancements in molecular electronics. Molecular scale and material are two subdivisions of molecular electronics used in high-tech and artificial intelligence devices.

Molecular electronics is also known as molecular-scale electronics, moletronics or molectronics.

Techopedia explains Molecular Electronics

First brought to light in late 1990s, the theory of molecular electronics was presented by Mark Reed. It quickly became popular among electronic device and microchip manufacturers due to its small size, light weight and flexible use. Molecular electronics includes all characteristics of conductors, insulators and semi-conductors. Since this field deals with the smallest scale characteristics and sub-molecules, this field is related to chemistry, physics as well as biology. It deals with laws of electronics. Molecular electronics technology deals with the building structure of electrons and can easily be utilized to create complex fabrications of integrated circuits. It can control the molecular-scale properties of individual atoms of matter according to use.
