Room temperature NDR molecular switch made in Israel

Researchers at the Wiezmann Institute of Science in Israel have created a new molecular switch that, for the first time, uses negative differential resistance (NDR) at room temperature, essentially creating a switch with no moving parts. The NDR phenomenon has been used before at the molecular level, but only at extremely low temperatures; this experiment demonstrated the effect, at the molecular level, can be "stable, reversible and reproducible at room temperature."
