Faster, faster, more and more data. Our demands for Internet speed are outpacing the technology. UC San Diego alum Janelle Shane has an answer: lasers. As we try to fit more and more data on wires, we are running up against the limit of what electricity can do. Wires heat up, and interfere with each … Read moreCan Lasers Make The Internet Faster?
From an electrical engineering researcher at the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego: “It resembles a mushroom cloud, but in fact, it’s one of our microscopic nanolasers, imaged under an electron microscope. These lasers are among the smallest in the world, so small you could fit a billion of them on an iPhone … Read moreMicroscopic Nanolasers
