Moving data with silicon and light

Building BlocksIntel® Silicon Photonics Technology is a new approach to make optical devices out of silicon and use light (photons) to move huge amounts of data at very high speeds with extremely low power over a thin optical fiber rather than using electrical signals over a copper cable. After nearly a decade of research and innovation to prove its viability, Intel created a P&L (Silicon Photonics Solutions Group) in 2012 to move the project into production.
