A great example of how materials science can transform technology and society is Moore’s Law. Writing a half-century ago, Gordon Moore predicted that continuous improvements in semiconductor manufacturing would lead to a doubling of computing power roughly every two years. This prediction played out with astonishing accuracy and extraordinary results. Consider that the processor in
