U.S. Must Accelerate Nanoelectronics Research

The Semiconductor Industry Association today called for creation of a Nanoelectronics Research Institute to direct and coordinate a massive research effort to assure continued U.S. leadership in information technology after current semiconductor technology runs up against insurmountable physical limits. "The price for not starting now on a massive, coordinated research and development effort in nanoelectronics could be nothing less than a loss, in just two decades, of U.S. economic and defense leadership," said Dr. John E. Kelly, III.
