Great news for technology lovers! Researchers have now developed a new optic technology to enable the computers as well as optic communication devices users to experience high speed through terahertz microchips.
Uriel Levy, one of the researchers at Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU) in Israel said that the discovery of this optic technology could help in filling the THz gap and create new and highly powerful wireless devices that are capable of transmitting the data at considerably higher speed than the users are experiencing at present.
Levy further added that “In the world of hi-tech advancements, this is a game-changing technology. While creating the terahertz microchip, the two main challenges the developers have to deal with were scalability and overheating.
According to a news published in the journal Laser and Photonics, the researchers have given clear proof of concept for an optic technology that combines the speed of light or optic communications with the reliability. Additionally, it also shows the manufacturing scalability of electronics. Optic communication includes all the technologies that make the use of light and transmit via fiber optic cables like the Internet, text messages along with the email, the cloud and data centers.
Such communications are highly efficient and super fast. However, in microchips, these communications are believed to be unreliable and hard to repeat in large quantities. Uriel Levy and his teammates have brought in an all-new integrated circuit by utilizing a MONOS (Metal-Oxide-Nitride-Oxide-Silicon) structure. This circuit utilizes flash memory technology, which is basically used in discs-on-key in the microchips and also in flash drives.
According to a recent study, if everything goes well, the technology will make the standard 8-16 GHz computer systems to run hundred times faster. This will also bring all optic devices closer to the holy grail of communications.
