Stanford Innovation Helps 'Enlighten' Silicon Chips

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
STANFORD, Calif., Oct. 28 -- Electrical engineers at Stanford University have invented a key component that can easily be built into chips to break up a laser beam into billions of bits of data (zeroes and ones) per second. This could help chips output data at a much higher rate than they can now. The discovery may enable a tiny modulator -- a solid-state shutter -- to be made of silicon and germanium. Because silicon and germanium are elements common in semiconductor manufacturing, the modulator could be built into chips easily and cheaply. The researchers said they are confident they can...Read full article
