Setup for supercontinuum generation with integrated silicon nitride waveguides. The enlarged section shows the coupling setup, in which part of the generated spectrum is visible as red radiation from the waveguide.
Images of the of the (a) 80?, (b) 40?, and (c) 20 GHz FSR resonators and the corresponding transmission spectra for (d), (e), and (f), respectively, used in demonstrating frequency combs spanning over 200 nm.
Michal Lipson does groundbreaking research on nanophotonics—“optics on a very, very small scale." In this interview for Fusion’s “Genius” series she explains how nanophotonics could revolutionize the way computers work.
