Community News - Nano-optical cables defy diffraction limit of light

Posted on September 08, 2014

Beating the diffraction limit is something that attracts a fair amount of attention in metamaterials research. Now, researchers from the University of Albertahave shown that fibre optic cables can be made thin enough to replace the copper connections in computer chips, something previously thought impossible due to the understanding of total internal reflection and diffraction. The research, reported in “Transparent subdiffraction optics: nanoscale light confinement without metal”, uses a transparent non-metallic metamaterial to create "extreme skin-depth waveguides" and could be usedful in photonic integrated circuits.

I want to show some appreciation to the wetrir just for bailing me out of this particular predicament. Just after surfing through the search engines and meeting principles which were not powerful, I was thinking my life was done. Existing without the presence of approaches to the problems you've sorted out by way of your entire article content is a serious case, and the kind which might have negatively damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your web site. Your own skills and kindness in touching every item was vital. I don't know what I would've done if I had not encountered such a step like this. I am able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your skilled and sensible guide. I won't hesitate to recommend the sites to anybody who should get guide about this issue.
