Jesper Nygård: Nanoelectronics - from artificial atoms to the computers of the future

7 February 2014

Jesper Nygård: Nanoelectronics - from artificial atoms to the computers of the future As electronics keep getting smaller and smaller, what will happen when a transistor is the size of an atom? Will a computer chip still work? Will the strange laws of quantum physics impose limits on computers or....
