To enable a radical reduction in energy consumption in electronic devices:
- Research to lead to fundamentally new science;
- Educate a diverse generation of scientists, engineers, and technicians;
- Promote the application of the Center’s research outcomes.
- Concentrates on two fundamental components of digital information processing systems: the digital logic switch and the short-medium range communication of information between logic elements.
- Seek to approach the fundamental limits on the energy consumption required to process information.
- Establish fundamental advances in physics, chemistry, and materials science.
To contribute to the development of a diverse generation scientists and engineers:
- Be knowledgeable in the scientific approaches to low energy digital electronics systems;
- Appreciate that diverse teams optimize creativity; and
- Understand the process of innovation and the transition of research results to commercially-viable products.
