Paper Abstract

As we enter the Information Age, it is imperative to accelerate the evolution of many relevant supporting technologies. Virtually all of these essential technologies are hindered by inherent, unresolved, critical materials related impediments, if not limitations. Challenging materials problems await resolution in the areas of information transmission (photonics, electronics and optoelectronic integration) and information storage devices. Selected recent research activities, aimed at addressing these technological bottlenecks are discussed.
