Toward optical chips
September 17, 2014
A promising light source for optoelectronic chips can be tuned to different frequencies. Chips that use light, rather than electricity, to move data would consume much less power - and energy efficiency is a growing concern as chips' transistor counts rise. Of the three chief components of optical circuits - light emitters, modulators, and detectors - emitters are the toughest to build. One promising light source for optical chips is molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which has excellent optical properties when deposited as a single, atom-thick layer. Other experimental on-chip light emitters have more-complex three-dimensional geometries and use rarer materials, which would make them more difficult and costly to manufacture.
