Quantum Waveguide in Microcircuits

Jian-Bai Xia, Duan-Yang Liu, Wei-Dong Sheng
December 08, 2017

Moore's Law predicts that the degree of microprocessor integration of circuits would double every 18 months in DRAM. Although the scaling of microelectronic circuit elements still follows Moore's Law, the unit density of power consumption becomes unacceptable. Therefore, on one hand, people develop...
