An analysis of research in quantum nanoelectronics and nanomagnetics for beyond CMOS devices is presented. Some device proposals and demonstrations are introduced and reviewed. Based on this, the favorable trends in this field are identified. Principles for the development of competitive computing technologies are formulated. Results of beyond-CMOS circuit benchmarking are reviewed.
Ian Young is a Senior Fellow and director of Exploratory Integrated Circuits at Intel Corporation. His recent work developed a uniform benchmarking methodology to identify key “Beyond CMOS” technology options in quantum nano-electronics and nano-magnetics. He received the PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley.
