This is incredible stuff…
Amazing stuff, but by the end of it I felt like they have solved one problem but come up with a huge list of bigger ones…. Or is it just me?
Video of videos. A few years later we will run optical computers. OPTO/CPU coming soon.
That's why it's called "research"
I honestly think optical computers will replace our traditional electronic computers. Quantum computers have potential, but they remain basically random, they work on far different principles and require environments where quantum interference is down to a minimum. That's not good for personal use. Optics though, work in almost the same way electronics do, but many times faster. I don't think it'll be long before optical computers are a reality. I have lots of hope.
Sounds great but then the pulling the electrons out unless you can achieve that with a laser will be limited by electronics.
Watching this I got an idea. What if you build your circuits as light tunnels for photons, in the middle you read the current state, at the end you have a nano crystal trap. Why couldn't you use the gap between the photon pulses as the off gate and therefore represent 1/0 as a constant stream of photons.
10:20 Seriously, a dudes texting? While this man talks about the future of the very technology he is holding in his hands? What a butt-hole >:(
Very informative and a good presentation!
Cool!!! Do you believe there exists such a material , that when you apply light at wavelength A it allows light at wavelength B to go through. And then when you stop applying light at wavelength A , it stops to allow wavelength B to pass through?
maybe the X is in front of you but you can't until now see it
Someone give this guy a glass of water!!!
You would need to create Photonics science branch just like Electronics and teach future photo-engineers about operating just with light and photonic components – not electronic parts. Such schools don't exist yet and probably will not exist for longer time until we reach significant limits of electro-computations.
500 years later….
There is a problem with this talk. CPU stopped shrinking in 2005, because the quantum effects didn't allow to make smaller CPUs.
One Hidrogen atom is 1 nm wide. Circuits stopped shrinking at 22 nm, because you get circuit lines as thick as 1 atom, you cannot get thinner than that.
Until now, that is… http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinions/intel-s-14nm-revolution-everything-you-need-to-know
So what would be an estimate for the fastest clockspeed of an optical processor.
what ever you do you will still limited by the phisics of electronic
There is no resistance while photon is moving……wonder why intensity of a light decreases with distance..
Transistors are to slow and cook even with light when you need is an inner crystal surface that when hit by light from the 2 directions the output light goes through the other hole. This system would process light bijectively as opposed to with on and off. Simply turning light off or on with a transistor requires more power and means slowing light down a bit using components prone to cooking. I propose a 2 light point geometric light processor as opposed to a an on off system as being far more efficient and scalable in 3d at the nano scale.
that fake accent though
People, videos and discussion about this idea have just stopped and disappeared! Why? Am I missing out?
I thought a photon travels with a speed of 30m to the power of 7 p/s, not 10m to the power of 8 p/s lol
RIP English with indians…..
That was awesome. Great job. Hope to see this in computer tech in the next few years.
Who is this guy?
Wait a minute, the gates are still being stimulated by an electric charge, how will you manage to fix that? I mean, wouldn't the ideal scenario be a photonic transistor which gate be controlled by light as well?
very cool presentation, actually using this for my own presentation in my school!
Given that there exist ways to finely attenuate, amplify, phase shift and frequency shift light using only optics and additional pump light, you can build optical logic gates, which means you can make memory flip flops, adders, with a comparator and even a clock with some phosphur as an optical capacitor. can't you build a whole turing machine with no semiconductors in it? how fast could that machine go if made small?
