Researchers have designed a new chip-integrated light source that can transform infrared wavelengths into visible wavelengths, which have been difficult to produce with technology based on silicon chips. This flexible approach to on-chip light generation is poised to enable highly miniaturized photonic instrumentation that is easy to manufacture and rugged enough to use outside the lab.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the University of Maryland, and the University of Colorado described their new optical parametric oscillator (OPO) light source in OSA’s journal Optica, illustrating how the device can produce output light that is a different color, or wavelength, than the input light….READ MORE
