A method to control the propagation of light in confined pathways, or waveguides, has been developed by a team of Columbia Engineering researchers headed by Applied Physics Assistant Professor Nanfang Yu.

The researchers used nano-antennas to develop this method with high efficiency. They demonstrated this method by building photonic integrated devices that had record-small footprints. These photonic integrated devices were also capable of maintaining optimal performance over an unprecedented broad wavelength range.

Optomechanical devices, which simultaneously confine light waves and mechanical waves to permit interaction between them, can be used both to study fundamental questions in physics and to sense motion in a way similar to electromechanical accelerometers. In smartphones, these electronic components switch the touchscreen between portrait and landscape when they detect rotation by the user.

Optical transceiver developer ColorChip says it recently received $17 million in funding, capping its most recent round at a total of $37 million. CIRTech fund led the funding; Scale-Up fund contributed as well.

ColorChip plans to use the cash to accelerate go-to-market initiatives, expand its manufacturing capabilities, and fund research and development. The company says it hired 100 employees over the past year, with an expectation that it will add another 50 people in 2017. This year's additions will beef up the operations and engineering groups as well as R&D.
