Sorry, no etymologies found.
* Operates with far less heat and more efficient energies (femtojoules) * Faster switching speeds (femtosecond) * higher density potential for devices
Now a group of researchers from Belgium, the Netherlands, and France-led by Geert Morthier of microelectronics research firm Imec and Ghent University, both in Belgium-are using a tiny whispering gallery for photons, called a microdisk laser, to create an optical memory cell that operates using mere femtojoules of energy and which might form an important component in future optical communication technology.
