Opportunities for optics in integrated circuits applications Conference Paper uri icon


  • Optics potentially addresses two key problem in electronic chips and systems: interconnects and timing. Short optical pulses (e.g., picoseconds or shorter) offer particularly precise timing. Results are shown for optical and electrical four-phase clocking, with <1 ps rms jitter for the optical case. 2005 IEEE.
