It was a great pleasure to edit this handbook, which consists of outstanding chapters written by acclaimed experts in their field. The overall objective was to provide coherent coverage of a broad spectrum of issues in molecular and nanoelectronics (e.g., covering fundamentals, reporting recent innovations, devising novel solutions, reporting possible technologies, foreseeing far-reaching developments, envisioning new paradigms, etc.). Molecular and nanoelectronics is a revolutionary theory- and technology-in-progress paradigm. The handbook’s chapters document sound fundamentals and feasible technologies, ensuring a balanced coverage and practicality. There should be no end to molecular electronics and molecular processing platforms (MPPs), which ensure superior overall performance and functionality that cannot be achieved by any envisioned microelectronics innovations.
Due to inadequate commitments to high-risk/extremely-high-pay-off developments, limited knowledge, and the abrupt nature of fundamental discoveries and enabling technologies, it is difficult to accurately predict when various discoveries will mature in the commercial product arena. For more than six decades, large-scale focused efforts have concentrated on solid-state microelectronics. A matured $150-billion microelectronics industry has profoundly contributed to technological progress and societal welfare. However, further progress and envisioned microelectronics evolutions encounter significant fundamental and technological challenges and limits. Those limits may not be overcome. In attempts to find new solutions and define novel inroads, innovative paradigms and technologies have been devised and examined. Molecular and nanoelectronics have emerged as one of the most promising solutions.
The difference between molecular- (nano) and micro-electronics is not the size (dimensionality), but the profoundly different device- and system-level solutions, the device physics, and the phenomena, fabrication, and topologies/organizations/architectures. For example, a field-effect transistor with an insulator thickness less than 1 nm and a channel length less than 20 nm cannot be declared a nano electronic device even though it has the sub nanometer insulator thickness and may utilize a carbon nanotube (with a diameter under 1 nm) to form a channel. Three-dimensional topology molecular and nano electronic devices, engineered from atomic aggregates and synthesized utilizing bottom-up fabrication, exhibit quantum phenomena and electro chemo mechanical effects that should be uniquely utilized. The topology, organization, and architecture of three-dimensional molecular integrated circuits (MICs) and MPPs are entirely different compared with conventional two-dimensional ICs.
