An even more versatile optical chip

Telecommunication networks will soon have to exploit the quantum properties of light. An INRS team is paving the way to this technological revolution by removing the technical barriers of quantum photonics through optical chips. Researchers recently generated directly cross-polarized photon pairs on a chip, a first in quantum optics. Polarization will now be among the controllable parameters for harnessing light, helping the creation of low cost, high performance, energy efficient technologies. —> Read More
