Seminar: What comes after Moore's Law?

Seminar by Avik Ghosh

University of Virginia


As Moore's law draws to an end, there is a lot of interest in knowing what comes next, and how we could continue energy efficient computing that capitalizes on novel materials discovery, quantum evolution of correlated states, or emerging brain inspired architecture.

Over the years, we have developed the formal and computational tools to couple detailed material and charge transport models with device and systems level models, to understand the  fundamental and practical limits of various computational paradigms.

Through these models coupled closely with experiments from our collaborators, we have reached fundamental understanding of  emerging material and device concepts, such as topological effects in memory or logic, and unconventional switching in strongly correlated systems. 

Based on our research, I will discuss some fundamental questions relevant to nanomaterials and devices: 

1. Can we bypass the Boltzmann limit that constrains today's electronic logic?
2. Can novel physics, such as topologically protected states, help in this regard?
3. Can we combine the lessons from 1 and 2 to achieve brain-inspired real time  neuromorphic computing
