Advanced Device Technologies

Despite the vast computational power available in today’s extreme-scale computing systems, there are still certain types of problems for which that power is inadequate and silicon-based computing devices will likely never be able to solve. Sandia is exploring technologies necessary to enable a new paradigm of computing that goes beyond the limits of Moore’s Law. Core areas of competency are post-CMOS processors, quantum information processing, simulation of solid state and quantum devices, and development of computing methods to support materials and device simulations.
