Optics potentially addresses two key problem in electronic chips and systems: interconnects and timing. Short optical pulses (e.g., picoseconds or shorter) offer particularly precise timing. Results are shown for optical and electrical four-phase clocking, with < 1ps rms jitter for the optical case.
