Graphene: information at e-speed. Englund discusses

Dirk Englund is cited by Marketplace Tech for his work using graphene to build the next level of computing speed.

“There’s a very strong need for that computer to turn electrical signals into optical signals very efficiently,” Dirk Englund the Jamieson Career Development Assistant Professor in the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department explained to Marketplace Tech. Englund was approached to discuss his work in the Quantum Photonics Laboratory, where computer chips made of graphene and silicon are encouraging information to move near the speed of light.
