Integrated ultra-low-loss resonator on a chip

Nature Photonicsvolume 12pages255256 (2018) | Download Citation

Exquisitely low-loss optical resonators have thus far remained discrete. Monolithic integration of waveguides with silica resonators that have Q factors >100 million charts a path toward incorporating these devices in photonic circuits.
