ARRIVAL OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR PROVES PERIOD OF DEVELOPMENT AND CHANGE CONTINUES

By CBR Staff Writer

The sudden arrival on the scene of the high temperature superconductor has put paid to the theory that we happened to be living in a shortlived period of explosive development and change in microelectronics that would be followed from the late 1990s by a period of consolidation as chip design rules reached the limits imposed by atomic physics: clearly, the next 15 years are going to see if anything more rapid and fundamental changes in computing than the last 15 – and progress on high temperature superconduction is moving so rapidly that, reports the Washington Post, the scientific journals can’t keep up and have been left in the dust while Iowa State University is publishing an on-line newsletter to keep researchers in the field up to date on the latest developments elsewhere.
