molecular electronics[mə′lek·yə·lər i‚lek′trän·iks]
The use of biological or organic molecules for fabricating electronic materials with novel electronic, optical, or magnetic properties, applications include polymer light-emitting diodes, conductive-polymer sensors, pyroelectric plastics, and, potentially, molecular computational devices.
the original name of one of the areas of study (trends) in microelectronics. During the 1960’s the term “molecular electronics” was widely used, but in the early 1970’s it gradually began to be replaced by the term “functional electronics.”
