Photonic network-on-chip (PNoC) is a promising candidate to replace traditional electrical NoC in manycore systems that require substantial bandwidths. The photonic links in the PNoC comprise laser sources, optical ring resonators, passive waveguides, and photodetectors. Reliable link operation requires laser sources and ring resonators to have matching… (More)
Many-core chip architectures are now feasible, but the power consumption of electrical networks-on-chip does not scale well. Silicon photonic NoCs (PNoCs) are more scalable and power efficient, but floorplan optimization is challenging. Prior work optimizes PNoC floorplans through simultaneous place and route, but does not address cross-layer effects that… (More)
To demonstrate control over the quantum spectrum of light, we tune the joint spectral intensity of photon pairs generated at telecommunications wavelengths using a low-power diode-pumped compact CMOS-compatible silicon chip at room temperature.
