"Future Nanoelectronics: Materials Science and Physics"
A new nanoelectronics must be developed over the next two decades to sustain present rates of progress. The general outlines for what that technology should do are beginning to come into focus, but as yet there is no consensus on how to proceed toward these goals. In this talk, I will summarize research on nanometer MOS transistors and atom-scale silicon devices by my colleagues and myself over the last ten years. Our long-term strategy envisions increasingly higher levels of synergy between materials science and quantum physics in developing this new technology.
