Optoelectronic microprocessors built using existing chip manufacturing

Boston MA (SPX) Jan 01, 2016

Using only processes found in existing microchip fabrication facilities, researchers at MIT, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Colorado have produced a working optoelectronic microprocessor, which computes electronically but uses light to move information.

Optical communication could dramatically reduce chips’ power consumption, which is not only desirable in —> Read More
