Submission + - Holey Optochip, Batman! IBM creates new optical transceiver. (physorg.com)

QQBoss writes: How long have you waited for a story to come along that actually uses "library of congress" as a unit of measurement? Your wait is over: At 1 Terabit/sec transfer rate, IBM's new optical transceiver can transmit the entire Library of Congress web archive in about an hour while using less than 5 watts of power using 48 transmit/receive channels. Go network your Beowulf clusters with that!

The new chip was presented at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference in Los Angeles.
