Researchers succeed in light-controlled molecule switching

Scientists are working on storing and processing information on the level of single molecules to create the smallest possible components that will combine autonomously to form a circuit. As recently reported, the researchers can switch on the current flow through a single molecule for the first time with the help of light.
