The Engineer writes about University of Pennsylvania researchers whose recent breakthrough, published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, could lead to development of consumer photonics.
According to a statement, the research team’s innovation built upon its earlier research, which showed that the cadmium sulphide nanowires exhibited extremely strong light-matter coupling, making them efficient at light manipulation.
This quality is said to be crucial for the development of nanoscale photonic circuits, as existing mechanisms for controlling the flow of light are bulkier and require more energy than their electronic analogues.
