Ultra-fast polymer modulators developed by researchers

Researchers in Japan have developed ultra-fast electro-optic modulators that are fast and reliable at high temperatures. This could help datacenters as it could lower cooling costs as a polymer is being used which can remain stable at temperatures which would make water boil. 200 gigabits of data can be transmitted per second by the silicon-polymer hybrid modulators at temperatures up to 110C.

Yes, this means faster, cheaper electronics components that can maintain operational efficiency even at high temperature without having to expend additional energy to keep it cool. Think car dashboards, foundries, satellites, solar collectors, kitchens, heavy industries, super computers, etc. Very many possible implications.

The figures give a wow reaction. But the story doesn't. Anybody got an simple English one.
