Paving the way to next-gen optical devices, where information is transmitted with light particles, researchers from ITMO University have suggested a method to bind light and matter more efficiently. The study was described in an article published in Nano Letters.
Scientists from ITMO’s Institute of Laser Technologies have developed a new technology that creates structured microfluidic elements, including channels, reservoirs, and spirals, on a silica surface. Importantly, the novel fabrication method requires only a laser and a single operator, while the resulting structures can be used in microfluidic chips for biomedical research and diagnostics of cancer, diabetes, and cardiac impairments. The results of the study are described in a recent article in Optical and Quantum Electronics.
A research team featuring scientists from ITMO University and the City University of New York has successfully created controllable topological states that can be selectively excited on a silicon chip. This is the first time that such an effect was induced in the infrared range and inside a structure just a few microns in size. As proved in the article published in Nano Letters, the flexible control mechanism, as well as its on-chip implementation, can serve as a foundation for disorder-robust optical microchips.
The university’s scientists have come up with a versatile way to generate quantum correlations and entanglements that makes it possible to dynamically change the system’s parameters and tweak photon characteristics such as bunching and antibunching. This study paves the way towards coding entangled states in superconducting qubits and processing quantum information on next-gen optical chips.
Modern computers are becoming increasingly more power-hungry and their performance doesn’t always meet our needs. Some say that optical computers could be the solution. ITMO University professor Ivan Iorsh spoke to ITMO.NEWS to help us learn what they are.
The modern photonics industry is constantly working on making its devices more compact, be it computing systems or sensors and lidars. For this, it is necessary to make lasers, transistors and other elements smaller. A team of scientists led by ITMO researchers proposed a quick and affordable method to create optical chips right in a Petri dish. The research was published in ACS Nano.
