Moore’s law could be saved by super-fast electronics and photonic tech

See on Scoop.itTracking the Future

There is a fundamental limit to how small transistors can become. This simple fact threatens to end the geometric increase in computational power predicted by Moore’s law in the not too distant future. Knowing this, researchers have been scrambling to come up with the next big thing in computing before that happens, and silicon photonics has shown some real promise.
