Researchers make single chip electronic-photonic processor: Researchers at MIT, UC Berkeley and the University...

"This system is a realisation of a microprocessor that uses on-chip photonic devices to directly communicate with other chips using light," say the researchers, "to integrate electronics and photonics at the scale of a microprocessor chip, we adopt a ‘zero-change’ approach to the integration of photonics. Instead of developing a custom process to enable the fabrication of photonics, which would complicate or eliminate the possibility of integration with state-of-the-art transistors at large scale and at high yield, we design optical devices using a standard microelectronics foundry process that is used for modern microprocessors."
