Photonic Crystal Components: Harnessing the Power of the Photon
Over the past two decades, researchers have worked to understand how to fabricate and use photonic crystal components, structures that can “trap” light. Once scientists can address the remaining challenges—of achieving high fabrication quality and precision and minimizing losses—photonic crystals will be ready to provide the photonic integration technology needed for the next-generation in optical telecommunications.
