Single atom working transistor
How cool would it be to have a high voltage diode the size of a single atom?  Is it possible?

Maybe some day....They're already doing it with transistors.  The University of South Wales has created a working single-atom transistor

It isn't in production, probably won't be any time soon, and there are certain design considerations when dealing with high voltage diodes.

But the single-atom transistor may be just the needed break-through needed to keep up with the predictions of Moore's law.
