Research Developed Using CORNERSTONE Published in Nature Communications

A multifunctional silicon photonics integrated circuit that can be programmed to perform a variety of different functions has been developed by researchers from Spain and the UK. The chip was fabricated within the framework of the CORNERSTONE project.

This is “the first photonic integrated chip that enables multiple functionalities by employing a single common architecture”.

The results have been published in Nature Communications.
