Lieber's Harvard lab is dedicated to bottom-up synthesis, that is self-assembling processes that achieve array densities beyond the reach of traditional lithography.

These devices are so small, that I believe reliability will be an ongoing issue affecting not only the material formulation, but the architecture used--redundancy?

The nanowire material was silicon germanium.

It is a really interesting work. The article, however, did not explain how the nanowires were made. Were they synthesized first and then attached to the wafer or were they deposited as a film and then lithographically defined on the wafer? If latter, then this is simply the extension of the existing semiconductor manufacturing technology.

What about reliability aspect? What will be operating temperature and other environmetal specifications? How about EMI/EMC and EMP? Will they have typical life of 15 years or more?

It's always interesting to read news about the emerging nanotechnology. I wonder who's more advanced? the universities and non-profit research centers or the private sector? I wonder how's the technology passed from the schools to the private companies? Who will be the first to capitalize on this innovation? By the way, I didn't see what kind of metal are the wires made of.
