Carbon Sciences to Develop Graphene-based Devices for Cloud Computing

   
Graphene-based fiber optics components have the potential to unclog the speed bottlenecks in Cloud computing data centers

Santa Barbara, CA - June 16, 2015 - Carbon Sciences, Inc. (CABN), focused on developing breakthrough technologies based on graphene, the new miracle material, today announced that it plans to develop graphene-based devices for cloud computing. Graphene-based fiber optics components, such as photodetectors, fiber lasers and optical switches are expected to unclog the existing bottlenecks and enable ultrafast communication in data centers for Cloud computing.

“We have learned a great deal over the past year while exploring methods to produce low cost graphene,” said Bill Beifuss, CEO of Carbon Sciences. “Now, we are shifting our focus to high value, large market opportunities to apply what we have learned. Many graphene applications are limited and many years away from finding commercial success. That’s not the case with Cloud computing. By 2019, mobile network traffic is forecasted to increase tenfold, creating one of the most significant market opportunities in the world.”

Cloud computing allows application software and services to be delivered from large server farms in data centers over the Internet. Almost every web service we use today such as Netflix, Google and Amazon are all delivered from the Cloud. As more and more people use Cloud services, more and more data are created that need to be stored, transmitted and processed. This explosion of data requires larger and larger data centers – as big as 1 square mile.

"The size of current and future data centers is challenging the fundamental speed limits of today’s fiber optics technology,” Mr. Beifuss continued. “The speed of data movement between servers is bottlenecked by these fundamental limitations. By exploiting the natural breakthrough optical and electrical properties of graphene, we plan to develop next generation fiber optics components that are ultrafast, low power and low cost.”

Mr. Beifuss concluded, “We believe graphene-based components will unclog the bottlenecks in the Cloud and unleash a global era of high resolution video on demand, high fidelity music streaming, high volume e-commerce and many more Cloud-based services.”

About Carbon Sciences, Inc.

Carbon Sciences is developing breakthrough technologies based on graphene, the new miracle material. Graphene, a sheet of pure carbon that is only one atom thick, is flexible, transparent, impermeable to moisture, stronger than diamonds and more conductive than gold. After successfully exploring methods to produce low cost graphene, Carbon Sciences is now developing graphene-based devices to enable ultrafast fiber optics communication in Cloud computing infrastructure.

Moore’s Law has enabled computers to process information at extreme high speeds. However, the speed of data movement between computers in the Cloud is bottlenecked by fundamental limitations of today’s fiber optics technology. By exploiting the natural breakthrough optical and electrical properties of graphene, we are developing next generation fiber optics components that are ultrafast, low power and low cost. We believe graphene-based components, such as photodetectors, fiber lasers and optical switches, will unclog the bottlenecks in the Cloud and unleash a global era of high resolution video on demand, high fidelity music streaming, high volume e-commerce and many more Cloud-based services.
