Lens Speeds Data Transfer

Researchers at Cornell University have created a silicon lense that amplifies the speed of data travel. This device is very energy efficient, and replaces bulky high energy equiptment originally used to speed up the transfer of energy. With power cosumption being a large issue, these lenses are very important because they save alot of power. Using large amounts of power to accomplish lesser speeds can cause heat and overload. ""You can't have your laptop run faster without it getting hotter" and consuming more energy, says Bergman. Electronics have an upper limit of about 100 gigahertz," (Bourzac of Tech Review). These optical cables can transfer massive ammounts of imformation without overheating. These lenses can change data transfer and electronic communication forever.
