The electronics focus area is focused primarily on overcoming the rapidly approaching barrier of the fundamental limits of silicon due to the phenomenal progress in current electronics and computer chips. Programs within this thrust will explore alternatives to silicon-based electronics in the areas of new electronic devices, new architectures to use them, and new methods to fabricate the chips. Programs will investigate the feasibility, design, and development of powerful information technology devices and systems using approaches for electronic device designs that extend beyond traditional complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) scaling, including nonsilicon-based materials technologies to achieve low-cost, reliable, fast, and secure computing, communication, and storage systems.
