There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom: A New Generation of Quantum Technologies

  • Lars Jaeger


In 1959, the quantum physicist and later Nobel laureate Richard Feynman gave a much-cited lecture which outlined how future technologies could operate on a micro- and nanoscopic scale (scales of one thousandth or one millionth of a millimetre, respectively). The talk was entitled “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom”. Feynman’s vision was very concrete: he predicted that man would soon be able to manipulate matter down to the level of individual atoms.
