<architecture> /nan'oh-k*m-pyoo'tr/ A computer with
molecular-sized switching elements. Designs for mechanical
nanocomputers which use single-molecule sliding rods for their
logic have been proposed. The controller for a nanobot
would be a nanocomputer.
Some nanocomputers can also be called quantum computers
because quantum physics plays a major role in calculations.
