Novel photon control paves the way for nanoscale nonreciprocal photonics
Active control of light has the potential to significantly enhance the capabilities of nanophotonics and enable far more robust circuits harnessing photons as information carriers. One promising way of controlling light is with so-called nonreciprocal effects. However, most studies of nonreciprocal control of light have focused on magnetoelectric materials and strong magnets not compatible with nanophotonics. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the Nanophotonics project is building on studies of nonlinear light generation in topological nanostructures with the goal of demonstrating world-first nanoscale nonreciprocal photonic components.
