Optical interconnects in present and future supercomputers are reviewed, emphasizing Exaflop performance circa 2020, which is 1000X today’s Petaflop computers. Power, density and cost requirements become increasingly stringent, ultimately driving the need for on-chip optics. (Integrated Photonics and Nanophotonics Research and Applications, 2009).
