IBM and California Institute of Technology scientists say they have achieved a major breakthrough that might result in smaller, more powerful semiconductors. The researchers said they have used a method called DNA origami to precisely arrange carbon nanotubes, nanowires and quantum dots into tiny structures, thereby producing the equivalent of a DNA circuit board that could form the basis of future computer chips. The inventor of DNA origami, Professor W.K.
