This article reviews recent developments in the area of molecular-scale computing. It describes the construction and operating characteristics of molecular wires, rectifiers, switches, and transistors. It also discusses the concept of molecular gain. Molecular computing architectures based on crosspoint arrays, randomized nanocells, and cellular automata will be discussed in Part II of this article in the November 2004 issue of EDFA.
