Three Supercomputers Interconnected at 100 GB per seconds

US Department of Energy has unveiled a networking system which will connect three supercomputers together at a whopping transfer rate of 100 GBps. The project is valued at 62 million US$. It is based on optical systems which consume lesser energy than conventional way of transferring data and require less routers. The system will be used for multiple research purposes ... Read More »

Method To Store Light Developed By Scientists

A team of scientists from Oregon State University have managed to store the fast moving light as mechanical excitations. So far, light has been used to transmit data, not store it. But this is something new. Earlier attempts have been made to store light as excitations in the form of sound, spin or atomic form. However in mechanical excitations, the ... Read More »
