20 Years of Integrated Organic Electro-Optics

Twenty years ago today, researchers at the University of Washington (UW), the University of Southern California, and industrial collaborators reported a breakthrough in telecommunications technology in the premier peer-reviewed journal, Science. The team, led by Prof. Larry Dalton at UW, had developed a polymer (plastic) electro-optic (EO) modulator, a device used for encoding signals for fiber optics, that exceeded the performance of standard EO modulators made with a crystalline material called Lithium Niobate.

Polariton Technologies AG: The World’s Fastest and Smallest Electro-Optic Modulators

Researchers at ETH-Zurich develop high-speed modulator using NLM HLD materials.

Our world is filling with digital devices that need to communicate with each other, and modern lifestyles mean people want to receive more data via the internet. Modulators, which convert electrical signals into the light signals necessary to cross the world in fiber optic cables, are an essential part of our communication infrastructure. ETH Zurich … Continue reading Polariton Technologies AG: The World’s Fastest and Smallest Electro-Optic Modulators
