Recently, the scientists are working on the new platform that can enhance the capacity of the next generation technology. As per the researchers, this new development can make next generation electronic devices more advanced.
Additionally, it is a set of electronic circuits on one small flat piece of semi-conductor material. This semi-conductor is made of silicon. However, this material has few limitations when it comes to processing data. For the successful result or to overcome the limitations and improve data processing, developers are creating optimal circuits made of chalcogenide glass.
As per the researchers, the chalcogenide glass is used for ultra fast telecommunication networks, transferring information at the speed of light. Combining these glass optical circuits into silicon chips could lead to a more advanced communications system, processing data a hundred times faster. The research has been conducted in collaboration with physicists at the University of Sydney's Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology (AINST), the Australian National University (ANU) and RMIT University.
