Spatio-temporal isolator in lithium niobate on insulator

Integrated photonics is making strides towards hosting an increasing range of functionalities on a chip. Examples include information processing and computation as well as optical sensing and ranging applications. This has ...

Scientists develop new lithium niobate laser technology

Scientists at EPFL and IBM have developed a new type of laser that could have a significant impact on optical ranging technology. The laser is based on a material called lithium niobate, often used in the field of optical ...

Changing the color of quantum light on an integrated chip

Optical photons are ideal carriers of quantum information. But to work together in a quantum computer or network, they need to have the same color—or frequency—and bandwidth. Changing a photon's frequency requires altering ...

Researchers set 'ultrabroadband' record with entangled photons

Quantum entanglement—or what Albert Einstein once referred to as "spooky action at a distance"— occurs when two quantum particles are connected to each other, even when millions of miles apart. Any observation of one ...
