Through detailed examination of the current state of the field and the direction in which it is headed, the contributors answer such questions as:
What is the future beyond shrinking silicon devices and the field-effect transistor principle?
Are alternative materials, ranging from graphene to magnetic semiconductors to chalcogennides, likely to reach technological insertion?
Is there practicality in fashionable topics like quantum computing, synaptic computing, synaptic computing, spintronics, and superconducting computing?
What are the most attractive system applications of optoelectronic hybrids?
Are there green pastures beyond the traditional semiconductor technologies?
Is energy-related research likely to boost the prospects of the microelectronics industry?
By identifying the scenario for the future evolution of microelectronics, this title presents a tremendous opportunity for constructive action on behalf of microelectronics professionals; researchers in communications, solid state physics, electronics and materials science; government policymakers and planners; and investors and consultants. It offers both professionals and students an informed, broad, and forward-looking overview of the entire field. --Book Jacket.
