Computing power’s decades-long rise has been both steady and astounding, but for this rise to continue researchers must grapple with some fundamental challenges.

Among these is heat. As devices become more compact and powerful, they generate more heat trapped to a smaller area. Today’s cooling technologies are simply not up to the job of removing heat that will be generated by tomorrow’s devices.

The defining characteristic of nanotechnology, where devices and their features are measured in billionths of a meter, is size. But size isn’t the only thing that sets the nano-realm apart. Materials and devices can behave differently – startlingly differently even – at the nano-scale than they do when in larger forms.
