The development of molecular electronics, the foundation for nanomedicine, would not have been possible without the availability of advanced computers; however, the availability of advanced computers seems to depend on the development of molecular electronics. Molecular electronics seems to aid in its own growth.

These advances are not limited to computing either.  The more scientists learn about nanotechnology, the more they learn about engineering, chemistry, physics, mathematics, etc. In September 2002,researchers at Hewlett-Packard created the highest density electronically addressable memory to date. The 64-bit memory uses molecular switches and has an area of less than one square micron.

The device has a bit density that is more than 10 times that of current silicon memory chips.Extreme optimists have gone on to propose that nanotechnology will bring the end of war, the end of world hunger, the end of disease, and ultimately the end of death.  It is hard to discern the difference between science fiction and science fact at the moment.  But one thing is sure: molecular electronics is a highly promising new field that will be investigated with vigor for many years to come. .
