Gordon Moore's famous law about the doubling of transistor density and 
power every two years will not only end it could bring economic disaster 
in its wake, respected scientist Michio Kaku has predicted in a new 
book. [ Link http://ho.io/n3nt ]

Kaku sets out the crunch moment as being the point at which ultraviolet 
light can no longer tuned to etch ever smaller circuits on to silicon 
wafers, which on current trends will kick in less than a decade from 
now. From that moment on, Moore's Law will gradually diminish, and the 
effects will not only be technological but economic.
