Beating the energy consumption limit in computers by developing state-of-the-art physical switches for digital devices

The Landauer project aims at developing innovative basic physical switches for digital devices. The switches should be capable of operating below the limit identified by the Landauer’s principle. This principle states that there are inferior limits to the energy consumption taking place during computations. Beating the limit may pave the way towards the development of computers with very low energy consumption.
