Description:  A pair of crossed carbon nanotubes (upper left corner) form the heart of an experimental memory device. Researchers at Harvard University have exploited the mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes to demonstrate the feasibility of molecular-scale computer memory. The nanotubes are connected to four gold electrodes. The horizontal triangle across the top of the image is the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope used to construct the device.
