Ionic Liquids and the Future

I had to read this article a couple of times when I first saw it.  While I am not a scientist, I do have an understanding of how microchips are made, and how they operate.  This article is not for everyone, but it DOES show us a glimpse into the future.

The Future, you say?   Yes…understand this: In years to come, we are going to have to move away from silicon products for computers…because of Moore’s Law.  We will have to make things smaller and smaller…and this ionic liquid will enable us to change a material’s state from conductive to insulating…on a microscopic level.  Scary and exciting stuff.

While this is only research for now, the potentials are amazing to think about.
