Blasting tiny craters in glass, creating material to miniaturize telecommunication devices: An ultrafast laser-blasted glass doped with rare earth erbium ions to produce a material used in integrated optical circuits

Modern communication systems often employ optical fibers to carry signals across or between devices. The integrated optics in these devices combine more than one function into a single circuit. However, signal transmission requires long optical fibers, which makes it difficult to miniaturize the device. Instead of long optical fibers, scientists have started testing planar waveguides. […]
