Intel Says Photonics Light the Way to Faster Chips

Intel researchers are shedding some light on a potential new application for chip photonics: upping the performance of multicore processors.

The processor giant’s research labs are exploring ways to use silicon photonics—on-chip components that use light to transmit data—to replace electrical interconnects using copper wiring and simultaneously speed up vital connections that move data into and out of processors.
