米 UCSB (University of California Santa Barbara)に、2015年に 1Terabit
2020年に 100Terabit Ethernetを目標とする研究所：Terabit Optical Ethernet
Center (TOEC) が産学協同で設立されました：
"Tomorrow's Internet: 1000 times faster
UCSB-led team developing next-generation Ethernet to handle surging
traffic, support cloud computing, emerging applications"
October 20, 2010
"A new research center has been launched at the University of
California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) to make that a reality. Researchers
with the Terabit Optical Ethernet Center (TOEC) will develop the
technology necessary for a new generation of Ethernet a thousand times
faster, and much more energy efficient, than today's most advanced
networks. They are aiming for 1 Terabit Ethernet over optical fiber
- 1 trillion bits per second - by 2015, with the ultimate goal of
enabling 100 Terabit Ethernet by 2020."
"Partnering with TOEC as founding industry affiliates are Google Inc.,
Verizon, Intel, Agilent Technologies and Rockwell Collins Inc."
"... TOEC, which is part of UCSB's Institute for Energy Efficiency
"Research at TOEC will build on UCSB's world-leading expertise in
materials, advanced electronics, photonic integrated circuit
technology, silicon photonics and high-speed integrated optical and
electronic circuits, and in bridging these new technologies with real
networking systems. Blumenthal says new low-cost, energy-efficient
optical technologies that leverage the techniques now used in
semiconductor manufacturing will be the foundation for the Ethernet
of the future."

"Consortium launched to focus on photonic technology"
September 24, 2010
"A new research consortium led by UC Santa Barbara has been launched
to develop photonic technology for communications and sensing
"The multi-university-industry consortium is one of four chosen for
funding by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Program Agency (DARPA)
out of contenders from around the country. It will focus on
innovative basic research in the field of photonics, in which light,
rather than radio waves or electrical currents, is used to transmit
"The consortium-Photonic Integration for Coherent Optics (PICO)-also
includes researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
the California Institute of Technology, the University of Virginia,
Lehigh University, and 17 industry partners including HP, Intel,
Corning, Teledyne, Rockwell-Collins, Infinera, and JDSU."
"...Larry Coldren, acting dean of engineering and Professor of
Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials at UC Santa Barbara.
He will serve as director of PICO. UC Santa Barbara professors John
Bowers and Mark Rodwell and research engineer Leif Johansson are also
part of the center. DARPA is providing just over $2 million annually
for PICO, and the university and industry partners will give about the
same level of support."
"The chips to be developed at PICO will draw on both monolithic
indium phosphide and silicon CMOS technology."

Optoelectronics Technology Center
"The Optoelectronics Technology Center (OTC) was established to facilitate
fundamental advances in photonics and optoelectronics by a team of faculty
in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and Materials Departments.
It has been involved in various multicampus consortia funded by the
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) since the early nineties"
