Submission + - New material sets stage for all-optical computing

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers have made a new material that can be used to guide waves of light, a breakthrough that could lead to ultra-fast computing. Georgia Tech scientists are using specially designed organic dyes that can process and redirect light without the need to be converted to electricity first. Using an optical-router could lead to transmission speeds as high as 2000 gigabits per second, five times faster than current technology.

'For this class of molecules, we can with a high-degree of reliability predict where the molecules will have both large optical nonlinearities and low two-photon absorption,' said Marder.
