Scientists Build Germanium-Tin Semiconductor Laser for Silicon Chips

Scientists Build Germanium-Tin Semiconductor Laser for Silicon Chips

Scientists belonging to the Forschungszentrum Jülich and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland have collaborated with global partners to build a germanium-tin (GeSn) semiconductor laser for applications in silicon chips. This semiconductor is made up only of main group IV elements, and hence the GeSn laser can be applied onto silicon chips directly. A new method for data transmission using light on computer chips is offered by this semiconductor. The speed of data transfer is faster and requires only a fraction of the energy that is required when compared to data transmission through copper wires. [More]
