About this Book

In this book leading profesionals in the semiconductor microelectronics field discuss the future evolution of their profession. The following are some of the questions discussed:

  • Does CMOS technology have a real problem?
  • Do transistors have to be smaller or just better and made of better materials?
  • What is to come after semiconductors?
  • Superconductors or molecular conductors?
  • Is bottom-up self-assembling the answer to the limitation of top-down lithography?
  • Is it time for Optics to become a force in computer evolution?
  • Quantum Computing, Spintronics?
  • Where is the printable plastic electronics proposed 10 years ago?
  • Are carbon nanotube transistors the CMOS of the future?
