Studies have recently shown tiny wires made by precisely placing chains of phosphorus atoms within a silicon crystal has been proven to have excellent electrical conductivity. The new silicon wire is four atoms wide and one atom tall showing that "electrical resistivity" — or ease with which the current can flow — definitely doesn't depend on wire width.
