Scaling in the electronics industry according to Moor's law has recently been slowing down. Further size reductions will ultimately lead to an atomic scale electronics. However, how viable is such an atomic scale technology? Photonics too has undergone quite some size reduction. The ultimate limit is set by the wavelength and the refractive index. The question then is if there is room for scaling beyond the Abbe diffraction limit? In this talk we will review recent advances in the field of an atomic scale electronics and photonics.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
