Re: "According to Xu, the Rice team's device can potentially modulate a signal at more than 10 gigabits per second." Nice, but what is the major advantage vs 10G, 40G and 100Gb/s optical solutions in use or being deployed now?

integrated solution using CMOS i guess. i believe the current solutions are either has discrete optical front ends or uses expensive InP ICs.

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.
