Wired news also has an article about Intel's announcement today.
"This is a significant step toward building optical devices that move data around inside a computer at the speed of light," said Pat Gelsinger, Intel's chief technology officer.

Intel believes the finding could have profound implications for the links between servers in corporate data centers. Eventually, the technology could find its way into personal computers and even consumer electronics.

"It is the kind of breakthrough that ripples across an industry over time, enabling other new devices and applications," Gelsinger said. "It could help make the Internet run faster, build much faster high-performance computers and enable high-bandwidth applications like ultra-high-definition displays or vision-recognition systems."

If Intel can deliver on this technology - and they have the money and the infrastructure to do so - computing and telecommunications could see radical advances in the years to come.
