Ultra-Fast Photonic Computing Using Polarization


New technical paper titled “Polarization-selective reconfigurability in hybridized-active-dielectric nanowires” was recently published by researchers at University of Oxford and University of Exeter.  The paper demonstrates “the ability to use polarization as a parameter to selectively modulate the conductance of individual nanowires within a multi-nanowire system. By using polarization as the tunable vector, we show matrix-vector multiplication in a nanowire device configuration. “

“We all know that the advantage of photonics over electronics is that light is faster and more functional over large bandwidths. So, our aim was to fully harness such advantages of photonics combining with tunable material to realise faster and denser information processing,” said first author June Sang Lee, Department of Materials, University of Oxford in this recent article.
