Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have found a way to grow nanolasers directly onto a silicon surface, which could lead to a new class of faster, more efficient microprocessors, as well as to powerful biochemical sensors that use optoelectronic chips.

IBM has unveiled a new chip technology that integrates electrical and optical devices on the same piece of silicon, claiming that it will enable a 10X improvement in integration density over current manufacturing techniques and the creation of 1Tbps electro-optical transducers just a few millimetres square.
