There's lots of talk in my area about this going huge here soon and our "lame" VP came to visit today. Look it up. They are also saying 10000 new jobs here.

Its supposed to be all about using light (including lasers) and sensors to transfer data using extremely small devices as I understand it.
Biden announced the award with Cuomo following a private briefing on the technology. President Alain Kaloyeros of the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute showed the two men an array of next-generation photonic technology, including a chip with 144 optical ports and the potential to transmit 20 terabytes of data a second and a module with more than 400 integrated photonic elements that can transmit the equivalent of the entire print content of the Library of Congress in 20 seconds.

Just a bit faster than dial up with AOL :D Remember that?!? You were lucky to download one song in 15 minutes. Anyways, thanks for the heads up Pman as that is some impressive technology. Did they say where they would like to build?
