Now Lasers Make Computers 1 Million Times Quicker

What if I say that a billion operations per second is no more cool? Know what’s cool? A million billion operations every second in the fast-paced digital world! Yes, you read that right.

Well, this is something that the latest computing techniques have promised. The technology makes use of laser-light pulses for making a prototype of the fundamental unit of computing, known as ‘bit’. The best thing is that it can switch between ‘on’ and ‘off’ mode or from ‘1’ to ‘0’ states, in just 1 quadrillion times per second. The most interesting part is that it is almost 1 million times faster as compared to bits in modern computers.

Traditional computers (starting from the smartphones to calculators and even laptops) process in terms of 1s and 0s. Each and every functions they perform starting from running video game to solving mathematical calculation, they tends to work on 1 or 0 or it is yes or no operations. But a modern computer makes use of silicon bits for performing almost 1 billion operations per second.
