Advancements in Nanophotonics based on van der Waals Materials
A recent paper in nature communications by Kim et. al. (2018), entitled “Photonic crystal cavities from hexagonal boron nitride” examines the development of a scalable quantum photonic technique. This technique utilises hexagonal boron nitride as a platform, while creating an advancement in nanophotonics based on van der Waals materials. The experimental setup uses the gem 532 laser from Laser Quantum as the excitation laser for the broadband emission in hexagonal boron nitride and single emitters. The findings are useful for solid-state systems with applications in integrated photonics, polaritonics and cavity QED experiments.
Laser Quantum’s gem family offers robust and reliable lasers, designed for easy integration into OEM equipment, and provides excellent specifications, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
