Switches, gates, transistors and other electronic devices built on a molecular scale (molecular + electronics). Also known as molectronics.
Example Citation:
"The Hewlett-U.C.L.A. team is just one of six groups around the country working under an ambitious program by the Federal Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency that is trying to create a new kind of molecular-scale electronics — known as moletronics — that they hope will one day surpass the power and capacity of the silicon-based technology in today's computers."
— John Markoff, "A Renaissance In Computer Science," The New York Times, July 19, 1999
