04.05.2018. Researchers at AMOLF, in collaboration with the University of Texas, have created a microscale circulator that directionally routes light on an optical chip without using magnets. Their work is published in Nature Communications.   HOT PI,...

HOT featured in EU-FET newsletter

30.01.2018 - Researchers forming part of the Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies consortium (H2020 FET Proactive HOT project) demonstrated magnet-less isolators and circulators for microwaves. Devices that route microwave signals are essential...

One-way track for microwaves based on mechanical interference

27.09.2017 - EPFL researchers use interference in the motion of a micrometre-size drum to route microwave signals in a single direction. Scientists at EPFL and the University of Cambridge have demonstrated a new principle for developing tools...

Nanoscale motion sends light into overdrive

07.07.2017 - AMOLF researchers have developed nanoscale strings whose motion can be converted to light signals with unprecedented strength. This could allow for extremely precise sensors and comes with an important side-effect. “Analogous to a guitar amplifier in...

Seeing the light
