When they turned on a voltage between the electrodes, it created an electric field that herded the negatively charged electrons toward the positively charged electrode, effectively sweeping them out of the way. As a result, the photons were able to build up unhampered, until they produced a continuous laser beam. On the Inside Intel researchers still have to find ways to manufacture silicon lasers alongside electronic components on chips. Electronic circuits are built through the painstaking process of laying down and etching dozens of layers of materials.
As an initial demonstration of the usefulness of silicon photonics, Paniccia plans later this year to integrate several modulators and other optical components onto a piece of silicon; this setup should enable data transfer speeds of gigabits per second. Such a prototype, hopes Paniccia, will illustrate the potential of silicon photonics to carry data into and out of chips far more efficiently than anything currently on the market. Walking through one of his newly renovated labs this spring, Paniccia showed off a mock-up of an optical Ethernet cable that would use silicon photonics.
On the end of the spaghetti-strand-thin cable sits a connector that resembles the end of a phone cord, with metal pads sitting under tiny slits in a silicon encasement. In a functional version of the cable, electrical signals would travel from a computer chip through those metal pads to a silicon photonic chip inside the tiny connector, where they would be converted into a stream of light pulses. While on the outside the cable resembles familiar technology, adding cheap silicon photonics to it would bring unprecedented speed and power to computers.
Still, Paniccia is convinced it will happen. Robert Service is a Portland, OR-based writer who covers chemistry and materials science for Science. Robert Service.

MIT Technology Review is a magazine wholly owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology , but editorially independent of the university.
Bruce Journey. In September , it underwent another transition under its then editor-in-chief and publisher, Jason Pontin , to a form resembling the historical magazine. Before the re-launch, the editor stated that "nothing will be left of the old magazine except the name. The magazine, billed from to as "MIT's Magazine of Innovation," and from onwards as simply "published by MIT", focused on new technology and how it is commercialized; was mass-marketed to the public; and was targeted at senior executives, researchers, financiers, and policymakers, as well as MIT alumni.
Technology Review was founded in under the name "The Technology Review" and relaunched in without "The" in its original name. It currently claims to be "the oldest technology magazine in the world. In , The New York Times commented: . In , Killian graduated from college and got his first job as assistant managing editor of Technology Review; he rose to editor-in-chief; became executive assistant to then-president Karl Taylor Compton in ; vice-president of MIT in ; and succeeded Compton as president in The May 4, issue contained an article by Dr.
Norbert Wiener , then Assistant Professor of Mathematics, describing some deficiencies in a paper Albert Einstein had published earlier that year. Wiener also commented on a cardinal's critique of the Einstein theory saying:. The historical Technology Review often published articles that were controversial, or critical of certain technologies. A issue contained an article by Jerome Wiesner attacking the Reagan administration's nuclear defense strategy. The cover of a issue stated "Even if the fusion program produces a reactor, no one will want it," and contained an article by Lawrence M.
Lidsky ,  associate director of MIT's Plasma Fusion Center , challenging the feasibility of fusion power which at the time was often fancied to be just around the corner.
In , the magazine started using a puzzle column started in Tech Engineering News a few months earlier. Its author is Allan Gottlieb, who has now written the column for more than fifty years.
