Examples of Cutting Edge Semiconductor Devices?

Can anyone give me some examples of some of the most cutting-edge/futuristic/"we're not there yet" applications for semiconductors? You know... the "exciting" stuff. :biggrin:

I'm doing an informal presentation for my solid state class, and wanted to get some ideas of what I should research.

Thank you!

lasing in silicon is one of the hottest topics that has yet to be exploited to a point where it is utilized in devices.

Double Heterostructure Lasers is what you need. You can find many documents on Internet.
 
Thanks guys. The silicon photonics was an excellent source of interesting stuff. I also chose semiconductor spintronics and diamond semiconductors. I think that should be enough! :)
