Intel: the future of electronics is a hybrid silicon "laser device"

By Chris Foresman.

Intel announced today that it has reached a milestone in its efforts to replace copper wiring with light by creating a stable, 50Gbps link between two devices using fiber optics. Dubbed "silicon photonics," the chipmaker’s innovations are the basis for a fiber optic interconnect that can be theoretically scaled to 1Tbps for device-to-device and wide-area networking connections. Those same innovations could one day be used to replace copper interconnects in electronic systems… Read More>>
