The Intel research results published in Nature Photonics regarding world-record performance


  • The Intel research results published in Nature Photonics regarding world-record performance using a silicon-based Avalanche Photodetector (APD) describes continued work on SOI (as detailed in ASN#8). Intel says this opens the door to lowering the cost of optical links running at data rates of 40Gbps or higher and proves, for the first time, that a silicon photonics device can exceed the performance of a device made with traditional, more expensive optical materials such as indium phosphide.
