A Step Closer to a Photonic Future

Engineers build cutting-edge photonic devices using standard chip-making process

The future of computing may lie not in electrons, but in photons – that is, in microprocessors that use light instead of electrical signals. But these so-called photonic devices are typically built using customized methods that make them difficult and expensive to manufacture.

Now, engineers have demonstrated that low power photonic devices can be fabricated using standard chip-making processes. They
