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 tools in engineering, with applications ranging from radio communications and radars to superconducting quantum circuits. In particular, isolators and circulators, which let signals flow in one direction but block them in the other, are needed to protect sensitive equipment from harm.
