Wow sound great and too good to beleive unless you read their technology and had knowledge about physics.After reviewing the information from the website, I am truly amazed about POET. I hold Phd in Physics and nanotechnology teaching in UAE and I think that it will be biggest discovery of 21st Century.

The Savior of Moore's Law? I think this could be it. Not kidding.

First- The title of this post may sound sensationalistic.   I ask you to read my entire post, because what i have found, appears quite remarkable.  

I am interested in fellow industry types such as yourselves opinion of what appears to be a game changing technology.  I highly encourage you to investigate this (see links at bottom) - if only for your interest and your feedback.    It truley appears to be the real deal.   

What is it: Monolithic GaAS chip combining optics and electronics on one semiconductor die.  It has been in development for 30 years and now moving from R+D to commercialization by DR. Taylor (U.Conn Technology Dean, PHD and considered a WW authority on GAaS) at POET Technologies.   

What can it do: Many X clock speed performance of Si (I am not exaggerating, GAAs has much better electron mobility than Si) , up to 70% less power of current SI models, elegant design (lower manu costs due to less need to pack chip with transistors)- and more.  Can be built with existing Semi fab equipement (Intel would not need to spend $B to use it).   Little known company that is "coming out to the world in 2014" exploding with 400% stock performance YTD - people are realizing what this is.   

BAE (British Aerospace) has verified technology. NASA funded (previously), TDK design kits are built. The company now turning into a fabless licensing play (see ARM), with first partner being announced within months (rumoured to be multi national, top 10 semiconductor maker).

Again, sounds too good to be true - but this checks out to be very legit.  See video link (second link).  What give most confidence is that this has been incubated in the U.Conn lab for 30 years by a brilliant Professor, Dean at U.Conn, and his team.  He is highly respected. The tech is now ready.  

I am interested in any feedback you have - good or bad.

P.S. This chip has quantum computing capabilities (not fully complete -but close, they have many patients in this area).
