Breakthrough in All-Optical Processing Could Bring Terabit Data Speeds

Abstract:
Researchers funded by the National Science Foundation and DARPA have developed polymethine organic dye materials that mesh three necessary attributes -- large nonlinear properties, low nonlinear optical losses, and low linear losses -- into a single package, opening the door for a new generation of all-optical devices that work at telecom wavelengths. That means large files -- like that ripped HD torrent of Valentine's Day that still hasn't finished downloading to your hard drive -- could move across networks far more quickly, facilitating everything from advanced telepresence apps to the rapid sharing of detailed medical images to better Web TV.
