2015: The Year We Left Moore's Law Behind
 
Contact Bill Burton: (312) 996-2269 / burton@uic.edu

2015 marked the 50th anniversary of Moore's law, which accurately predicted that the number of transistors on a computer chip would double every 18 to 24 months. Now that the smallest transistors have been shrunk to 10 nanometers — only a few dozen atoms across — chipmakers have left behind the world of classical physics and entered the realm of quantum effects. As the year draws to a close, UIC theoretical physicist Dirk Morr has looked ahead at what the crossover from classical to quantum transport of current will look like to physicists and engineers.
