15:30 - 17:30   Rump Session 1: Energy Efficient Photonics Technologies for Optical Interconnects in Supercomputers and Data Centers (Co-Chairs: Tingye Li, and TP Lee)

 

Power consumption is a critical issue in super-computers and data centers which require communications links among the racks, boards and chips. These links can extend from less than a few centimeters to many tens of meters operating at speeds exceeding tens of Gb/s in a densely-packed and thermally-unfriendly environment. Present solutions involve optical interconnects such as active optical cables using VCSELS as sources and multimode-fibers as the transmission medium for relatively low-speed and short-distance applications, and lasers on silicon-photonics platform and single-mode fibers for higher-speed and longer-distance deployments. Presently, the VCSEL approach dominates the market, as cost is predominant rather than performance demands. However, as technical requirements become more demanding, and performance and costs of each technology improve, so the demarcation of application areas will shift. This rump session will explore the limitations of performance and costs of the two technologies, in light of future requirements for speed, distance, size, cost, and power consumption. Panelists will present their cases and the audience is invited to participate in the discussion.

Silicon photonics has emerged from a state of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" to become the "Technology of Choice" for datacom applications. It is now being commercialized for optical interconnects in super-computers and data centers. As its performance and cost-effectiveness improve, its applications will extend to telecom as well as on-chip communications. Furthermore, innovative opportunities exist in sensing and bio-medical arenas. Technology-wise, development in the nano regime could lead to unforeseen potential applications. This rump session will include presentations by panelists and discussions with audience participation of the present state-of-the-art of silicon photonics, developments in datacom and telecom areas, and forward-looking research toward future potential applications.

15:30 - 17:30   Rump Session 3: Identifying New Technologies and Applications for Fun and Profit (Chair: James Harris)

 

When the laser was first demonstrated in 1960, many thought it was "an invention looking for an application". Now, applications of lasers are ubiquitous. Although small markets for gas and solid-state lasers existed for R&D applications, the first significant application of the laser was that of the semiconductor laser for lightwave communications in the mid 1970s followed by the mass market created by CD players and CDs in the 1980’s with general recognition by the public that lasers were every day useful devices upon which they depended. Identifying a new technology and application for fun is easy, but difficult for profit. To successfully identify a new technology and application involves understandings of the performance and cost limits of the technology and its competitors, the economics of the application, the timing of the market, and business acumen. This rump session will consist of presentations and discussions by panelists from the industrial and investment sectors, as well as from the academe, with participation from the audience.
