Tunable optical chip paves way for new quantum devices

Tunable optical chip paves way for new quantum devices

Researchers have created a silicon carbide photonic integrated chip that can be thermally tuned by applying an electric signal. The approach could be used to create reconfigurable devices such as phase-shifters and tunable optical couplers for networking applications and quantum information processing.
