We combined bottom-up atomic fabrication with spin-resolved scanning tunneling microscopy to construct and read out atomic-scale model systems performing logic operations. Our concept uses substrate-mediated indirect exchange coupling to achieve logical interconnection between individual atomic spins. Combined with spin frustration, this concept enables various logical operations between inputs, such as NOT and OR. I n conventional silicon-based information tech- nology, bits of information are represented by charge stored in capacitors and processed by transistor-based switches. The looming fun- damental scaling limits of this technology toward nanometer-sized devices ( 1 ) has led to an explo- ration of a variety of alternative computation...
