Carbon Sciences announced its plans to develop graphene-based devices for cloud computing. Graphene-based fiber optics components, such as photodetectors, fiber lasers and optical switches, are expected to unclog the existing bottlenecks and enable ultrafast communication in data centers for Cloud computing.
The company states that it is shifting its focus to high value, large market opportunities to apply the knowledge gained from years of exploring methods to produce low cost graphene. Carbon Sciences estimates that contrary to many other applications that are years away from finding commercial success, cloud computing can soon create one of the most significant market opportunities in the world. By exploiting the excellent optical and electrical properties of graphene, the company plans to develop next generation fiber optics components that are ultrafast, low power and low cost.
