Golden transistor: A chip-based molecular transistor concept is based on an electrochemical rectifier. The device can perform transistor-like functions with opposite current directions depending on the redox inputs. The unidirectional current recorded at a chemically modified collector electrode can be tuned by the potential applied to an independent generator electrode, which allows switching of the output current and information encoding.
