The Physical Limit of Moore’s Law

In 1965 a chemist named Hail Gordon Moore famously predicted that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits would double every two year.

Originally, he assumed it would only last a decade or so. But technology advances have kept pace with what has become known as Moore’s Law ever since.

However, we are approaching the physical limit of Moore’s Law. Read about potential new advances, or the end of increased computing power over at Nature.
