High-performance photonics for defense takes a giant step forward, study says

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. A new result published in the journal Nature by a team of academic researchers led by University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) demonstrates stable, turnkey operation of chipscale optical frequency combs, which means that component makers are a giant step closer toward enabling broader manufacture and use of high-performance photonics for defense and other use.
