Paper Title
Building the Next Ubiquitous Computing Device with Room Temperature Quantum Materials
Short Abstract
Computing is at a momentous point as devices approach the 10 nm dimensions even as new breakthrough AI/QC architectures evolve. In this talk, I will outline the framework that combines the energy/dimension scaling (Moore’s law), computer error rates (Shannon computing) and modern AI architectures [1]. I also outline how the next room temperature computing device can be made from quantum materials exploiting the correlated electron phenomenon.

We describe a quantum materials centric approach to enable the compute device layer for beyond CMOS era [2]. I will outline a number of pathways for computing devices that utilize quantum materials. And in particular, I will describe the concept device (named Magneto-electric Spin Orbit Logic) used by Intel to drive high functionality materials in magneto-electrics and topological materials.

In particular, the path to computing at aJ/bit (~30X more energy efficient than advanced CMOS) with 10-20X relaxation of the interconnect requirements will be described based on published ideas in utilizing magneto-electrics and topological materials [2].
