All-Optical Nanoswitch Promises Faster Computers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 10, 2012 — The first all-optical photonic switch made of cadmium sulfide nanowires has not only been produced but combined with others into a logic gate for on-chip information processing, which could help bring quantum computing a step closer. An all-optical photonic nanowire switch could help bring quantum computing a step closer. Here, laser light is emitted from the end of a cadmium sulfide nanowire. (Image: University of Pennsylvania) A team at the University of Pennsylvania built upon its earlier research showing that cadmium sulfide nanowires exhibited extremely strong light-matter...Read full article
