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?
