These circuits exploit strange quantum mechanical effects such as superposition (the ability for a particle to be in two places at once) and entanglement (strong correlations between particles that would be nonsensical in our everyday world).
According to LeRoy, relativistic quantum mechanical effects that come into play at atomic scales cause electrons to behave in ways that go against our everyday experiences of how objects should behave.
The only limits are when circuits become so small that quantum mechanical effects start interfering with their function.
These nanoscale semiconductor particles have such a tiny volume that they're governed by quantum mechanical effects.
Anton Zeilinger, a leading experimentalist and theorist from the University of Vienna, proposed a comprehensive interpretation of all quantum mechanical effects based on the concept of information.
Different properties of the NEMS-based devices, which makes them unique are low mass, high electrical strength, high mechanical resonance frequencies, potentially large quantum mechanical effects such as zero point motion and a high surface-to-volume ratio useful for surface-based sensing mechanisms.
Furthermore, quantum mechanical effects blur the light pattern.
However, the quantum mechanical effects of electron confinement in devices 10 nm or smaller result in phenomena qualitatively different than those seen in larger devices.
