Nanoelectronic Logic and Memory Advancements - News Item

The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society and the Business Communications Company are reporting that nanoelectronic computer memory and logic products are expected to enter the market as early as this year. The memory market is expected to reach $30 billion by 2008 and possibly be worth $200 billion by 2013.

Nanomaterials are needed in computer products due to the miniaturization of devices and increased processing power and memory of computer chips. In the short term this need will be met by carbon nanotube based memories built using conventional deposition and patterning techniques. In turn these products will be superseded by ultrahigh density molecular and solid-state memory arrays with nanowire interconnections.
