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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
