re: New grants extend nano research effort

Continued performance enhancements and power reduction are likely but continued device shrinkage is not possible through "transistor alternatives". No other devices have come remotely close to the size of a leading edge silicon transistor. And by the time the "alternatives" catch up with the sizes of silicon devices, the Moore's law would have ended long time ago.
