Petabit per second data transmission speeds from a single chip-scale light source

As the internet grows ever larger, there is an increasing need for innovation in the core technologies which drive the backbone of the internet.

Illustration of the new butterfly structure, which can be seen in the middle of the picture. The butterfly structure compresses the light spatially and the nanostructures around it compress it temporally. The result is a compression of light on the smallest scale to date – the world's smallest photon in a dielectric material
