Power/Performance Bits: Oct. 16


On-chip modulator Researchers at Harvard SEAS and Nokia Bell Labs boosted shrunk down an important component of optoelectronics with an on-chip modulator that is 100 times smaller and 20 times more efficient than current lithium niobite (LN) modulators. Lithium niobate modulators form the basis of modern telecommunications, converting electronic data to optical information in fiber optic ca... » read more

Is There Light At The End Of Moore’s Tunnel?


Last month’s article, “Is There Light At The End Of Moore’s Tunnel,” examined the state of the industry in terms of integrating photonics components onto silicon. It concentrated on the piece that has been the hardest to achieve – the laser. However, as realizing that integration goal has become closer to reality, it has also waned in terms of the number of people who believe it is th... » read more
