Seminar 4/24/2013 - Yurii A. Vlasov, IBM TJ Watson Research Center: Integrated Silicon Nanophotonics for High-bandwidth Chip-to-Chip Communications
Abstract:Silicon Nanophotonics enables dense integration of electrical circuits with optical devices scaled down to diffraction limit. The technology will enable future supercomputers capable of delivering Exaflops (10^18 floating point operations per second) by connecting racks, modules, and chips together with ultra-low power optical interconnects. Such a disruptive technology is a result of a decade of multidisciplinary exploration of various scientific fields in material science, fundamental physics and optics, that extended further into advanced device engineering and technology development and qualification.
All seminars are held on Wednesdays from 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m. in the Bowen Hall Auditorium Room 222. A light lunch is provided at 11:30 a.m. in the Bowen Hall Atrium immediately prior to the seminar.
