Variable potentials for thermalized light and coupled condensates

Nature Photonics. doi:10.1038/nphoton.2017.139 Authors: David Dung, Christian Kurtscheid, Tobias Damm, Julian Schmitt, Frank Vewinger, Martin Weitz & Jan Klaers Quantum gases in lattice potentials have been a powerful platform to simulate phenomena from solid-state physics, such as the Mott insulator transition. In contrast to...

Counter-propagating solitons in microresonators

Nature Photonics. doi:10.1038/nphoton.2017.117 Authors: Qi-Fan Yang, Xu Yi, Ki Youl Yang & Kerry Vahala Solitons occur in many physical systems when a nonlinearity compensates wave dispersion. Their recently demonstrated formation in microresonators has opened a new research direction for nonlinear optical physics. Soliton mode...

Unidirectional photonic wire laser

Nature Photonics. doi:10.1038/nphoton.2017.129 Authors: Ali Khalatpour, John L. Reno, Nazir P. Kherani & Qing Hu Photonic wire lasers are a new genre of lasers that have a transverse dimension much smaller than the wavelength. Unidirectional emission is highly desirable as most of the laser power will be in the desired direction....

Variable potentials for thermalized light and coupled condensates

Variable micropotentials for light are created by thermo-optic imprinting of a dye-polymer solution within a microcavity. A thermalized photon Bose–Einstein condensate, as well as the coupling and eigenstate hybridization of sites are demonstrated.

Nonlinear signal multiplexing for communication beyond the Kerr nonlinearity limit

Nature Photonics. doi:10.1038/nphoton.2017.118 Authors: Son Thai Le, Vahid Aref & Henning Buelow

Depolarization signatures map gold nanorods within biological tissue

Nature Photonics. doi:10.1038/nphoton.2017.128 Authors: Norman Lippok, Martin Villiger, Alexandre Albanese, Eelco F. J. Meijer, Kwanghun Chung, Timothy P. Padera, Sangeeta N. Bhatia & Brett E. Bouma

Tunable room-temperature single-photon emission at telecom wavelengths from sp3 defects in carbon nanotubes

Nature Photonics. doi:10.1038/nphoton.2017.119 Authors: Xiaowei He, Nicolai F. Hartmann, Xuedan Ma, Younghee Kim, Rachelle Ihly, Jeffrey L. Blackburn, Weilu Gao, Junichiro Kono, Yohei Yomogida, Atsushi Hirano, Takeshi Tanaka, Hiromichi Kataura, Han Htoon & Stephen K. Doorn

Tunable room-temperature single-photon emission at telecom wavelengths from sp3 defects in carbon nanotubes

Single-photon emission with 99% purity is generated from sp3 defects in carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by optical excitation at room temperature. By increasing the CNT diameter from 0.76 nm to 0.94 nm, the emission wavelength can be changed from 1,100 nm to 1,600 nm.

Nonlinear signal multiplexing for communication beyond the Kerr nonlinearity limit

The Kerr nonlinearity limit for optical fibre communications is surpassed by using nonlinear multiplexing.

Depolarization signatures map gold nanorods within biological tissue

An optical technique makes it possible to determine the distribution of gold nanoparticles in tissue.
