New technique to help produce next-generation photonic chips
Southampton, UK (SPX) Nov 17, 2014
Researchers from the University of Southampton have developed a new technique to help produce more reliable and robust next generation photonic chips. Photonic chips made from silicon will play a major role in future optical networks for worldwide data traffic. The high refractive index of silicon makes optical structures the size of a fraction of the diameter of a human hair possible. Squeezing more and more optical structures for light distribution, modulation, detection and routing into s ... read more
