Silicon and Non-Silicon Nanotechnology

By combining silicon innovations with other non-Si nanotechnologies on the same silicon platform, it is expected that Moore's Law will extend well into the next decade. Recently much progress has been made in the research of non-Si nanotechnology for future nanoelectronics applications. In particular, several emerging nanoelectronic devices such as carbon-nanotube field effect transistor (FET), semiconductor-nanowire FET, and III-V compound semiconductor quantum-well FET, all hold promise as device candidates to be integrated onto the silicon platform for enhancing circuit functionality and for extending Moore's Law.

Dr.Robert Chau, Intel Fellow and Director of Transistor Research, will describe the directions of future transistor research at Intel.
