Silicon photonics is a breakthrough communications technology that brings optical solutions to the computing industry and can revolutionize the data center. It combines the performance benefits of optical communication and manufacturing capability of silicon CMOS to enable high speed, long reach, small form-factor, and low power connectivity. This talk discusses Intel’s work in researching and developing silicon photonics and the announcement of two Intel® Silicon Photonics 100G optical transceivers for data communications applications.
Parts of this presentation were presented as a Keynote address at the MIT Enterprise Forum (Nov 14, 2016)
Dr Ling Liao is a Principal Engineer in Intel’s Silicon Photonics Product Division. She joined Intel in 1997 and is a pioneer in silicon high speed modulation and silicon photonic integration. Her work helped establish Intel as a premier leader in Silicon Photonics (SiPh) technology, and it played a big part in transforming SiPh from being a niche technical interest 15 years ago to the now key enabling technology to revolutionize data communication and data centers.
