Photonic crystal and nanowire combo advances 'photonic integration'

While bigger nanowires can improve light confinement and performance, it increases both energy consumption and device footprint — both of which are considered ‘fatal’ when it comes to integration. Addressing this problem, researchers came up with an approach that involves combining a sub-wavelength nanowire with a photonic crystal platform.
