Goodbye copper, welcome Indium Phosphide

We are not anywhere close to traveling at the speed of light, but we could be close to computing at the speed of light.  Researchers at UCSB and Intel have found a way to use lasers to send around information on a computer chip. It does appear to be a quantum leap in computing research. If the research really holds up and can scale then this is pretty monumental.  Not your garden variety breakthrough and the reporter is justified in using words like “holy-grail” and “final-frontiers”.

  1. Personally, I am so glad to have found such an easy system that I can work
    at home effortlessly.
    I have been working at home for over 21 years, and finally this vehicle has
    come along and has changed my life for the better! It’s about time.
    …and I don’t have to Speak-2-no-1 …ever
