Optics in Digital Systems (ID)

This group focuses on utilization of optical and optoelectronic devices and systems for digital data storage, processing, interconnection and networking. The group focuses both on the physical representation of information and on coding and communication protocols for effective utilization of photonic systems. Emerging areas within this group include optical interconnections and optical clock distribution for high performance computing, nanomaterials and microresonators for spatio-spectral data storage and coding schemes for all-optical communications.
