Silicon photonics light source:
A light-emitting component that uses silicon photonics technology. In the case of Fujitsu Laboratories, the compound semiconductor emits and amplifies light and then the silicon mirror determines the wavelength.
 Optical transceiver:
A module that converts an electrical signal to an optical signal, which it then transmits, and that also receives an optical signal and converts to an electrical signal.
 Optical modulator:
An optical component that converts electrical signals to optical signals. These include intensity modulators that convert to an optical-intensity signal and phase modulators that convert to light-phase signals.
 Exaflops-class supercomputer:
A supercomputer that can process 10 to the18th "FLoating-point number Operations Per Second".
 Ring resonator:
A resonator made of a ring-type optical waveguide. When used in silicon photonics, this can be made extremely small, with a radius on the order of microns. The ring's resonance effect makes it possible to create a highly efficient optical modulator.
