|Thanks, Frank — The article stimulated interest, but left the reader unsatisfied.|
Now, whether quantum dot technology is more recently the enabler of a new approach to multi-wavelength lasers, is something I'd have to look at more closely. Thanks for the homework assignment ;)
I'll research the question too. But on this subject, my work is an unguided missile. Far more likely that you will perceive whether there's anything of substance here. Should you find time to investigate (among your other priorities) any feedback will be appreciated.
... my thinking is that this would be consistent with the per-unit energy consumption curve of most newly introduced ICT technologies...
Odds are the reality doesn't match the headline. Probably I've been clickbaited :(
