Silicon Photonics: Fueling the Next Information Revolution introduces silicon photonics, the latest development the chip industry is using. Optics enables high-speed links over a distance, from short-reach interconnects linking equipment in data centers, to longer-distance networks that underpin the Internet.

Optics are also promising for use in chip-to-chip and intra-chip communications. This book addresses silicon photonics’ nature, its benefits and challenges, how it is being embraced, and its transformative impact on the IT and telecom industries. It describes the evolution of the technology and maps out how the technology will impact the IT, telecoms, and other industries.

  • Captures the latest research assessing silicon photonics development and prospects
  • Demonstrates how silicon photonics addresses the challenges of managing bandwidth over distance and within systems
  • Explores potential applications of SiP, including servers, datacenters, and Internet of Things
