Abstrackt:
Materials demarcate periods of human civilization. The current period can be argued as defined by silicon, the magic stone that transformed the way we live. In this talk, I will discuss how the concept of quantum, and the 1st wave of quantum revolution led to the rise of silicon, the integrated circuit, Silicon Valley and the information age. I will then discuss the opportunities and challenges beyond silicon, and theoretical ideas and experimental tools needed to enable the next wave of quantum, in search for the next magic stone.
