Optical communication using solitons on a photonic chip

Instead of using a train of soliton pulses in an optical fiber, researchers generated continuously circulating optical solitons in compact silicon nitride optical microresonators. These continuously circulating solitons lead to broadband optical frequency combs.

Control of material crystallization by agitation

Researchers have found that crystallization can be facilitated at a lower temperature than the traditional transition temperature if an amorphous material is agitated at a certain frequency. Thus, agitation represents a possible alternative to temperature for controlling the crystallization of materials.
