New publication in Science Advances

We are excited to announce that our new paper Guided-acoustic stimulated Brillouin scattering in silicon nitride photonic circuits has been published in Science Advances.

In this work, we use the symmetric double-stripe silicon nitride waveguide from LioniX to guide both the photon and phonon, showing the possibility to integrate stimulated Brillouin scattering in large circuits. This breakthrough will potentially be integrated with other emerging technologies such as tunable lasers, frequency combs, and programmable photonic circuits, and giving them a part in the future development of fields ranging from telecommunications to quantum computing.

This publication is a great achievement for Roel, and of course, also for the whole team. Congrats all!
