Nanoribbons light the way
While nanowire devices that can emit light and detect photons are already available, nanowire waveguides have so far proved elusive. Now, scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, both in the US, have used nanoribbons of crystalline oxide to channel light between devices.
