Chip off the old block for new era
"Photolithography techniques continue to improve," Ingo Aller says, "and we keep finding new materials. There are major advances in nanotechnology occurring that will allow us to keep Moore's Law in operation for many more years yet."
Aller explained to me new techniques with "strained silicon" and low-capacitance techniques and carbon nanotubes that will take chip design to the molecular or even atomic level.
Hewlett-Packard is also talking about "molecular scale computing" and some researchers are talking about using organic matter for chips.
