IBM researchers solve photonic-coupling problem

IBM photonics researchers have come up with a promising solution to the problem of coupling light fibers to optical ICs, in a move that may help realize CMOS-based optoelectronics. The breakthrough employs the same photonic crystal techniques typically used in photonic circuit design to create highly efficient coupling between standard fiber optics and on-chip photonic waveguides.
