Scalable Photonic Links for Ethernet Systems

Team: Michael Watts with Jonathan Bradley, Michele Moresco, Ben Moss and Erman Timurdogan

Network limitations can have an adverse affect on the performance of large-scale computing systems such as data centers. This project will integrate laser sources with silicon photonics to create versatile and scalable photonic links for Ethernet systems that will enable unprecedented performance and scalability. (Renewal from Fall 2013 grant round)
