A research team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has developed a new, more powerful kind of device, called the transistor laser. The transistor puts out both electrical signals and a laser beam, which can be directly modulated to send optical signals at the rate of 10 billion bits per second. With some further modification, the transistor laser will eventually send a staggering 100 billion bits per second or more. Instead of using relatively slow wires to connect chips stacked… CONTINUE READING
