Beyond Silicon: Intel is Exploring New Semiconducter Materials

The link is to an article on the MIT Technology Review site. In it, there is a lightweight treatise on how silicon has it's limitations as a material for computer chips and just a bit of the how and why Intel is looking at new materials for this use.

This is hardly the kind of article you and I can use, but it does tell you a bit about research now going on which may affect the computers we use in a few years. If you have an interest in that, check this one out.
