Compact and Parallel Free-Space Optoelectronic Interconnection and Logic Operations with Optical Thyristors

For several years there has been a realization that electronics is facing limits in both the speed and parallelism that may be achieved with conventional wiring. This is particularly apparent for chip-to-chip and board-to-board interconnects. Optics has been widely studied as a suitable high-speed interconnection medium to overcome this interconnection bottleneck. It is attractive due to its better immunity to capacitative and inductive crosstalk, signal dispersion, and electromagnetic interference.
