Announcement of an IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology Special Issue on: Optical Interconnects

2019 Journal of Lightwave Technology  
Scope: Large-scale data centers and high-performance computers (HPC) are becoming increasingly limited by the capacity of interconnects due to the rapidly increasing power consumption and bandwidth demands. As a r esult of the continuing bandwidth scaling, optical interconnects (OI) have been implemented at ever decreasing communication distances to replace electrical interconnects. Over the past decade, core switches and routers in data centers and HPC systems have adopted fiber optics to

Meanwhile, the further penetration of OI into shorter distances, such as the board and chip levels, poses new challenges and needs on photonics technologies and further requires innovations in integration and packaging techniques.
