The future will be faster thanks to photonics

Hossam Shoman holding the integrated element designed by his research group. (Photo: Erica Yeung) Have you ever stood in a checkout line at a store with 10 other people, waiting for one cashier to serve you? Now imagine how much faster it would be if there were 10 cashiers available. Similarly, the operation of a silicon electrical chip can be substantially improved by introducing photonics: more information is routed using photonics wires on chip allowing information to be processed more efficiently compared to traditional copper electrical wires.
