Prof's research proves possibility of silicon lasers

Abstract:
Silicon can be altered to emit light, according to a paper by Professor of Engineering Jingming Xu and his research team that will be published in the journal "Nature Materials" today.

According to Sylvain Cloutier GS, whom Xu described as "a leading force in the group," the lab's central goal was to make nano-level changes to the silicon atoms that would increase their suitability for use in lasers, something Cloutier called "nano-photonics."
