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."
 Silicon photonics
Technology in which a photonic device is configured on a silicon substrate. By using silicon, the optical circuits can be made smaller, enabling dense integration. It also has other merits, such as the ability to configure optical circuits and electrical circuits in one unit, and lower manufacturing costs.
 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.
 Silicon wire optical waveguide structure
An extremely small silicon optical waveguide, in which the height and width of the cross-sectional surface is less than 1µm.
