Interesting news. A step added to the long road of opti-tronics? Or how would you call that? Instead of electrical current, use light. In theory that would make faster computers and no FCC regulations needed... that would reduce the cost of electronics at the long term. Ooops, sorry, optronics ;-)

Hm, I really hope we can make and/or research these eventually in our campus lab. Talking with profs tomorrow!

I presume they would need to be grown at the place where they are needed...random placement of some lasers on top of the chip will probably not work;-)...some sort of seed for epitaxial growth???...dr Kris

The question is, how do you pump it electrically? i.e., how and where to make electrical contacts?

If growing nanoIII-V laser on top of CMOS works out that would be a game changer!!! dr Kris

This research will open a totally new stream in the field of electronics and optics. It would be possible to have smaller and faster routers and communication devices.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
