EPFL student wins FameLab Switzerland final
Hugo Cui, a PhD student at EPFL, has won the national final of FameLab Switzerland, one of the world’s biggest science-communication competitions.
Ultrafast optical switching can save overwhelmed datacenters
EPFL and Microsoft Research scientists demonstrated ultrafast optical circuit switching using a chip-based soliton comb laser and a completely passive diffraction grating device. This particular architecture could enable an energy-efficient optical datacenter to meet enormous data bandwidth requirements in future.
