Photonic integrated circuits (PICs)

Photonic crystals are responsible for the iridescent colours of a butterfly's wings.

Thinner crystals, smaller chips

Researchers have devised a new way of generating thin 3D photonic crystals that show promise for miniaturising photonic integrated circuits

PIC method set to speed-up coherent lidar

In a study published in Nature, researchers at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) demonstrate a new way to speed up a type of lidar engine by using photonic circuits
