This book is a brainchild of the third workshop (FTM-3) in the Future Trends in Microelectronics series. The first of the FTM conferences, “Reflections on the Road to Nanotechnology” had gathered in 1995 on Ile de Bendor, a beautiful little mediterranean French island. The second FTM, “Off the Beaten Path” took place in 1998 on a larger island in the same area, Ile des Embiez. Instead of going to a still larger island, FTM-3 “The Nano Millenium” went back to its origins on Ile de
Bendor in 2001. To compensate, the next FTM is planned on the biggest island of them all, Corsica. Normally the FTM workshops gather every three years; however, the FTM-4 will take place one year ahead of the usual schedule, in the summar of 2003, as one time exception.

invitation only. If you, the reader, wish to be invited, please consider following a few simple steps outlined on the conference website. The website at contains links to all past and planned workshops in the series, their programs, publications, sponsors, and, of course, attendees. Our attendees have been an illustrious lot. Suffice is to say that among FTM participants we find four Nobel laureates (Zhores Alferov, Herbert Kroemer,
Horst Stormer, and Klaus Von Klitzing, of which the former three have received their Nobels after attending FTM)and countless others poised for a similar distinction. To be sure, high distinction is not a pre-requisite for being invited to FTM but the ability and desire to bring fresh ideas is. All participants of FTM-3 can be considered authors of this book, which in a sense is a collective treatise.
The main purpose of FTM workshops is to provide forum for a free-spirited exchange of views among the leading professionals in Industry, Academia, and Government. It is a common view among the leading professionals in microelectronics is that its current explosive development will likely lead to profound paradigm shifts in the near future.

Identifying the plausible scenarios for the future evolution of microelectronics presents a tremendous opportunity for
constructive action today.For better or worse our civilization is destined to be based on electronics.
