Congratulations to Bing!

Bing’s research into integrated optical diodes was recently published in Optics Express. The paper is open access and freely available here. In this work, we describe the experimental realization of one of the smallest optical-diodes ever reported. These devices have important applications in optical communications, optical computing and potentially in quantum optics.
