The integrated circuit was invented (troublingly in California and Texas simultaneously) in 1959 and by 1965 the trend now known as Moore's Law was in full swing, doubling the number of circuit components on a chip every one to two years. More than 50 years later this trend continues to fuel the information age, making communication and computation cheap, powerful, and ubiquitous.
Dr. Mack is recognized worldwide as a leading expert in lithography and an teaches in the Electrical and Computer Engineering and Chemical Engineering Departments of the University of Texas at Austin.
