Practical and prospective slow light Surface Nanoscale Axial Photonics (SNAP) devices

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Miniature slow light Surface Nanoscale Axial Photonics (SNAP) devices are reviewed. The fabrication precision of these devices is two orders of magnitude higher and the transmission losses are two orders of magnitude smaller than for any of the previously reported technologies for fabrication of miniature photonic circuits. In the first part of the report, a SNAP bottle resonator with a few nm high radius variation is demonstrated as the record small, slow light, and low loss 2.6 ns dispersionless delay line of 100 ps pulses. Next, a record small SNAP bottle resonator exhibiting the 20 ns/nm dispersion compensation of 100 ps pulses is demonstrated. In the second part of the report, the prospects of the SNAP technology in applications to telecommunications, optical signal processing, quantum computing, and microfluidics are discussed.
