If you have a question about this talk, please contact Prof Simon Moore.

Optical interconnect for on-chip or board level signalling has been discussed for many years as a potential path to overcoming the limitations of copper wires, so far without any commercial success. However, the rapidly advancing field of silicon photonics may enable the fabrication of optical components at a similar cost to CMOS electronics. This talk will provide a short tutorial on optical interconnect focussing on the potential advantages and how the new silicon based optical components could be used. I will also discuss my initial research ideas. The purpose of the talk is to stimulate discussion and collaboration within the group.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Computer Architecture Group Meeting series.
