Description/Abstract

Optical fibres are the Internet and telephone communications backbone, interconnecting buildings, cities and nations. Optical fibre technology led directly to the data communications revolution of the late 20th century and is now impacting many other fields from remote sensing to biomedicine. Currently, telecommunications fibre systems require external solid state circuits to generate, amplify, receive, and manipulate the light. However, the process of converting the data between optical fibers and chip-based optoelectronic devices consumes enormous amounts of power, requires costly technology and reduces overall bandwidth. Therefore, it is preferable to avoid having to transform in-fibre photonic signals to chip based electronic signals. Indeed, the ultimate vision would be a purely fibre based system.
