Moore’s law scaling dead by 2021, to be replaced by 3D integration

Moore’s law scaling dead by 2021, to be replaced by 3D integration Much of the ITRS’ recently released executive report focuses on the way the meaning of Moore’s law has changed over the years.We discussed this back in 2015 when we noted the need for a Moore’s law 3.

Scientists are closing in on turning hydrogen into a metal

Scientists are closing in on turning hydrogen into a metal This isn’t about making lead into gold, but turning elemental hydrogen into a different, never before seen form of hydrogen.Scientists are tantalizingly close to producing the first samples of solid metallic hydrogen using powerful lasers, electrical impulses, and other cutting edge equipment.

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to mathematicians working in Flatland

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to mathematicians working in Flatland Michael Kosterlitz for “theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter.When cooled to just a few degrees above absolute zero, and subjected to a perpendicular magnetic field of 15 Tesla (just barely weaker than the magnetic field required to levitate a frog), that conductive 2D layer started acting very differently.
