Rewritable Optical Components Developed for 2D Lightwaves

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A team from Harvard University’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has developed rewritable optical components for surface lightwaves. When a wave of light is confined on a 2D plane by certain materials, it becomes something known as a polariton — a particle that blurs the line between light and matter. Polaritons enable light to be tightly confined to the nanoscale, even potentially to the thickness of a few atoms. That capability poses interesting implications for the future of optical circuits. Unlike electronic integrated circuits,...Read full article
