Abstract

Physical size and power consumption are both increasingly important issues in increasing the data throughput of future optical interconnects, switches and ultimately even optical memory elements. In this respect, phase-change memories have proven to be strong candidates, with data recording done by switching the material between amorphous and crystalline phases, much in line with today's DVD/DVR technology. However, polymorphic systems exist in which crystalline-to-crystalline transitions can provide for higher-base logics as well. In particular, by coding each distinct optical characteristic by a unique label, the different optical cross-sections of absorption and scattering of the crystalline phases of a single nanoparticle can be used as a logical element.
