Faster Optical Switching Through Chemistry



Specially designed molecules could lead to all-optical data switches that could make the Internet far faster.
New molecules produced at Georgia Tech could enable engineers to build all-optical data routers, ultimately leading to transmission speeds as high as two terabits--or 2,000 gigabits--per second. Today's fastest commercial routers switch data at 40 gigabits per second. Follow the links for more info.
