These news make me stun and i think appreciating them is only the minimum award for people involved in development of such technologies. I believe this technology will give a new boon to complete electonics IC to IC communication.

Not usesless exactly, but it probably won't show up on Intel's next processor chip either. So how small is it actually, or potentially? Let's see some dimensions.

Though it is breakthrough in miniaturization, the industrial application will depend on the ease of manufacturing these lasers. As it sounds, placing nanorods and then covering them with smooth thin film is challenging.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
