Graphene oxide 2D films integrated with nanowires and ring resonators for enhanced nonlinear optics

New research paper from Optical Sciences Centre, Swinburne University of Technology. Abstract "We report enhanced nonlinear optics in nanowires, waveguides, and ring resonators by introducing layered two-dimensional (2D) graphene oxide (GO) films through experimental demonstration. The GO films are integrated on silicon-on-insulator nanowires (SOI), high index doped silica glass, and sili... » read more

Power/Performance Bits: Nov. 30

Universal decoding algorithm Researchers at MIT, Boston University, and Maynooth University built a silicon chip that is able to decode any error-correcting code, regardless of its structure, with maximum accuracy, using a universal decoding algorithm called Guessing Random Additive Noise Decoding (GRAND). Encoded data traveling over a network is susceptible to noise, which disrupts the sig... » read more
