A New Optical Switch Speeds up Calculation 1,000 Times
Skoltech and IBM led an international research team that developed an exceptionally energy-efficient optical switch that might replace electrical transistors in a new generation of computers that manipulate photons rather than electrons. Aside from immediate power savings, the switch requires no cooling and is extremely fast: It is 100 to 1,000 times quicker than today's top-of-the-line commercial transistors, with 1 trillion operations per second.
Do you wish your electronic devices to be more responsive? What if your computer can perform calculations much more quickly? Most of us do, but the fact is that, given the state of the present technology, they are unlikely to become any faster than they already are! Single CPU core clock rates have been stagnant at a few Gigahertz for the past 15 years, making it increasingly difficult to push the bounds of the renowned Moore's law farther than they already are. However, a revolutionary technology from IBM has the potential to transform everything! What exactly are optical circuits, how do they function, and how will they help you make your products quicker using them?
