(New York Times): Researchers at McGill University have discovered a new state of matter that they say could greatly extend Moore's Law. The researchers say they've found a quasi-three-dimensional electron crystal that could enable them to harness quantum physics to make increasingly small computer chips. The crystal was discovered using a device cooled to a temperature that is 100 times colder than intergalactic space. Dr. Guillaume Gervais, director of McGill's Ultra-Low Temperature Condensed Matter Experiment Lab, said that the material is not quite three-dimensional but it's something in between two-dimension and three-dimensional.
