Silicon waveguides move us closer to faster computers that use light

Our Zurich-based team of researchers has just managed to efficiently guide visible light through a silicon wire – an important milestone towards faster, more efficient integrated circuits. Our low-loss silicon waveguide could enable new photonic chip designs for applications that rely on visible light, and could lead to more efficient lasers and modulators used in telecoms.
