Computing at the speed of light
Ultra Compact Beam Splitter
According to University of Utah researchers have developed an ultra compact beam splitter for dividing light waves into separate channels for information, a
breakthrough say they could lead to the next generation of computers and mobile devices that can operate at speeds millions of times faster than conventional machines
The researchers say the device is a step toward the development of silicon photonic chips that compute and shuttle data with light rather than electrons. Although light is the fastest medium that can be used to transmit information, that information.
