July 2009 Optics and Photonics News Magazine publishes an article on the Koç University Microphotonics Research Laboratory’s research efforts on Silicon Micromarbles. This being the “photonics century” in general, and the “microphotonics century” in special, it is only fair that we moved on to silicon micromarbles, which are pleasantly friendly to electrons as well as photons. By electrically controlling the size and the refractive index of these spherical micromarvels, microphotonic engineers should be able to spectrally shift the MDR’s, and therefore manipulate light creation, transmission and detection in three dimensional volumetric lightwave circuits.
