In quantum dots, however, the effect shows an opposite face: Resistance fades when the temperature drops below a so-called Kondo temperature. Because the effect boosts the current-carrying capacity of single-atom transistors, it increases the practicality of these as components for computers or other devices, says David Goldhaber-Gordon of Stanford University.
