New Semiconductor Materials Offer Promise for Ultra-fast Optical Devices

P. W. E. Smith

Future communications and computing systems will require advanced capabilities to handle the increasing requirements for ever-faster and higher-bandwidth operation. To move beyond the system limits imposed by electronic components, researchers are investigating the use of all-optical components for ultrafast operations such as switching and time-division multiplexing and demultiplexing.
