Abstract

In the last decade solid state electronics has continued its remarkable progress towards faster and smaller devices and circuits. Its ongoing development consistently defies the predictions of the many people who elaborate on the “ultimate” device performance. All this has been achieved through the continued refinement of silicon technology [10.1].
