However, a combination of technology and business factors has kept large-scale commercialization of photonic crystals in particular and photonic circuitry in general at bay.
Among the topics are quantum optics with single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavities, emission properties of photonic crystal nanolasers, photon statistics and entanglement in phonon-assisted quantum light emission from semiconductor quantum dots, all-solid-state quantum optics employing quantum dots in photonic crystals, femtosecond quantum optics with semiconductor nanostructures, and coherent optoelectronics with quantum dots.
Commenting on the study, Xiang Zhang, director of the National Science Foundation Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center at the University of California at Berkeley, says, "this new study in integrating graphene with silicon photonic crystals is very exciting.
Some pivoting on a particular component and others on a particular technique, they cover surface-relief diffraction optical elements, plasma etching, analog lithography with phase-grating masks, electron beam lithography, nano-imprint lithography and device applications, planar photonic crystals, and a molded tungsten approach to fabricating three-dimensional photonic crystals.
