Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that researchers have developed a microprocessor that transmits data via light instead of electrical wires. Discuss here if you think these new types of processors can help bridge speed gaps, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Yes, I think there is every chance they will make an important contribution in the future, particularly as they can be produced using standard semiconductor manufacturing methods. Light has already has its foot in the door, in terms of opto coupling, optical fibres and so forth.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
