New modulator for less energy consumption

To bring down the energy consumption of today’s communication infrastructure, researchers from the Institute of Electromagnetic Fields, ETH Zurich, developed a new component that efficiently transforms electrical data into optical light signals consuming extremely little energy. This new technology, described in a paper recently published in Nature Communications, can be used to transfer ever-growing amounts of information between cities, datacenters and even continents.
