IBM Corp. has come up with a method of letting molecules assemble themselves inside chip structures to form nanoscale structures that add redundancy and performance improvements to chips, the company said Monday. “Researchers at IBM have demonstrated a technique in which a common industrial polymer is applied to a conventional silicon wafer and then heated to produce a crystalline structure that can store information, said Chuck Black, an IBM Research staff member. Black, along with colleague Kathryn Guarini, authored a paper that will be presented Tuesday at a conference in Washington, D.C., explaining the method.”
