Discover the profound influence of Moore's Law beyond microelectronics. This lecture explores how it has shaped engineering, prompting the quest for innovative solutions, particularly in novel materials.
Moore's Law posits that the number of transistors on a microchip should double every 24 months. However, its impact extends beyond just microelectronics. Moore's Law has significantly influenced the evolution of engineering, giving rise to new challenges and driving the need for innovative solutions. This lecture aims to elucidate how Moore's Law has compelled engineers to explore the application of novel materials. Considerable innovative work has already been accomplished, and the trajectory suggests a continued focus on this front in the future.
