Abstract:

We plan to create a compact, low power, single chip system for generation of ultra slow light. Such a system would facilitate practical applications of nonlinear optics at light levels millions of times lower than what is presently possible. Potential applications include optical switches controlled by single photons, dynamically programmable optical delay lines with delays that can be pushed into the millisecond regime, and frequency up-conversion at extremely low power Levels.
