Six computer scientists take a look into the future

The semiconductor industry is building products with electronics just 65 billionths of a meter wide. The next two generations - 45 nanometers and 32 nanometers, each about three years apart - look OK, Horn says. "It's pretty clear nothing's going to replace silicon in that time," he says. "You go one more cycle out and, I'll tell you, it's getting pretty dicey. The problem is, there's no good alternative."
