Mesoscopic limit cycles in coupled nanolasers under strong fluctuations

Using two coupled nanolasers, researchers have demonstrated the existence of limit cycles with only a thousand photons in the cavities, in spite of the strong spontaneous emission quantum noise influencing the system dynamics. Any freely decaying dissipative dynamical ...

The cascade to criticality

Researchers at C2N (CNRS/Université Paris-Saclay), PhLAM laboratory (CNRS/Univ. de Lille) and ETH Zurich have unveiled a novel mechanism describing how criticality - a phase in which waves are neither extended nor localized but in a so-called “critical state” - ...

Amplifying a weak signal by manipulating the nonlinear resonance in a nano-electromechanical resonator

A team of researchers at C2N has experimentally demonstrated an enhancement by more than an order of magnitude of a weak electrical signal thanks to nano-electromechanical resonator. Their results, supported by theory, illustrate a general mechanism which potentially applies ...

The key components of a terahertz receiver, fabricated in the C2N cleanroom facility, will be on board of the ESA mission JUICE

The C2N and the Laboratoire d’Etude du Rayonnement et de la Matière en Astrophysique et Atmosphères – LERMA1 have jointly developed a process to fabricate terahertz Schottky nano-diodes, leading to the realisation of the world most sensitive heterodyne receiver ...
