5 -terabit optics under 1 volt, products two years away
Organic nanoscopic optical materials have for the first time dipped below the critical 1-volt mark with five times greater speed and other leading edge performance characteristics. Five times greater speed translates to 5 terabits/s or 625 gigabytes, the researchers said, adding that they achieved 10-fold lower power consumption and 10-fold decrease in manufacturing costs compared with industry standard materials based on lithium niobate crystals.
