  • 1.  
  • 2. Nanotechnology is what happens between Newton and Einstein. What Is Nanotechnology?
  • 3. In the 1960s Feynman starts looking at the ultimate scale of miniaturization and predicts its importance within 40 years. He was right. Plenty of Room At The Bottom
  • 4.
    • The scale of nature
    • The smallest physical devices
    • Convergence of physics, chemistry, and biology
    • Small is better
    • Small is different
    The Ultimate Length Scale
  • 5. Trouble ahead? Moore’s Law in 2010
  • 6.
    • “ When the length of the gate gets below 5 nanometers, tunneling will begin to occur.”
    • Paolo Gargini
    • Director of Technology Strategy
    • Intel
    Trouble Ahead at Intel…And AMD "At 5-nanometer gate dimension, I would have to agree with [Intel].” Craig Sander VP of Process Technology Development AMD
  • 7. Moore’s 2nd Law in 2010
  • 8. We Need New Electronics Prediction: By 2010, molecular electronics will be core components in some consumer devices.
  • 9. Another Form of Molecular Electronics: OLED
  • 10. Not Your Father’s Flat Screen Prediction: Between now and 2010, the displays market will undergo a revolution similar to the storage market for the last 10 years.
  • 11. "GE should invent a new light bulb every hundred years or so.” Greg Chambers GE OLED lighting group Shedding Some Light
  • 12.
    • Energy Efficient
    • Compact Size
