Holey Optochip Transfers One Trillion Bits of Information

IBM scientists have developed a prototype optical chipset, called Holey Optochip, that is the first parallel optical transceiver to transfer one trillion bits – one terabit – of information per second, the equivalent of downloading 500 high definition movies. The report will occur at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference taking place in Los Angeles, Calif.
