“Breakthrough in photonics could allow for faster and faster electronics” – reports http://phys.org
researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Micron Technology Inc. made it possible that Moore’s Law to continue well into the future, allowing for increasingly faster electronics, from supercomputers to laptops to smartphones.
Moore’s Law predicted that the computing speed would be doubled every couple of years.
It was found true even now. The computers getting smaller and faster.
Now, computers are going to become even more faster by incorporating photonics to electronics wherein the communication will be through light signals rather than by electrical signals.
