Chips make light conversation

Abstract:
Intel has found a cheap way to implement a fast interface between light and electricity that could make optical links between devices of all scales far more common. A major problem, oddly, is mechanical: how to get glass fibre input and output leads into precisely the right positions - something that has to be done manually on today's larger modulators. Intel engineers are confident they can harness the hyper-accuracy of nanotechnology to make this simply a matter of pushing the fibre into a tapered socket.
