Source of correlated photons made (very) small!

Teams at Thales and C2N (CNRS/UPSaclay/UParis) have developed a novel miniaturized source of light called Photonic Crystal Optical Parametric Oscillator. An Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) is similar to a laser in that it generates coherent light, namely photons …
