"Fundamentally, we have demonstrated for the first time that standard silicon can be used to build devices that amplify light. The use of high-quality photonic devices has been limited because they are expensive to manufacture, assemble and package. This research is a major step towards bringing the benefits of low-cost, high-bandwidth, silicon-based optical devices to the mass market." - Dr Mario Paniccia, director of Intel's Photonics Technology Lab.
