I urge readers attending the International Solid-State Circuits Conference at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis Hotel Feb. 19 to 23 to check out the booth of publisher Springer.
I have been told that several of the authors of CHIPS 2020: A Guide to the Future of Nanotechnology will be on hand at a launch for the book being held there. You may remember I reviewed the book recently. Special times to meet the authors have been reserved on Monday, Feb. 20, 3pm to 6:30pm and on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 5pm to 6:30pm.
Bernd Hoefflinger, lead author and editor of the book, tells me he hopes to get Burn Lin, vice president of lithography at TSMC along for the launch. According to Springer: "The most representative group, including Burn Lin (TSMC) for nanolithography, will be available Monday, 3pm to 4pm. So if you want to quiz Lin about EUV versus maskless e-beam lithography, that might be an opportunity.
