Communications breakthrough given a green light - Physics - The University of Sydney [cached]

Dr Grillet's colleague Dr Christelle Monat was in the labs of CUDOS* in the School of Physics at the time: "I didn't believe the camera.

Asked about the potential of this discovery, Dr Monat says: "One could imagine that a small green light indicator could help users of numerous internet applications. This could be used to immediately inform companies such as Skype of a problem in the clarity of their connections, thereby allowing them to fix this in real-time, all without the end-user even noticing."
The key to this unlikely event was a regular pattern of sub-microscopic air holes in the researchers' silicon chip, creating what is known as a photonic crystal. At the time of the discovery Dr Monat and Dr Grillet were assisting PhD student Bill Corcoran with experiments on slow light, itself a very novel and surprising phenomenon.
"Being able to control light on a chip, along wires no wider than one hundredth of the width of a human hair, represents the first step to realise all sorts of operations with significantly better performance than electronics alone," Dr Monat explains.

Quantum Electronics and Optics Prizes 2007-2011 — QEOD [cached]

2011 Fresnel Prize (Applied): Christelle Monat

EPS QEOD prize winner 2011
Christelle Monat received her PhD in 2003 from the Ecole Centrale of Lyon (ECL, France). She worked for two years at ETH Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland on single-photon sources. In 2005, she joined CUDOS (Sydney, Australia) to conduct research into optofluidics, until she was awarded an Australian ARC Fellowship in 2007 to explore slow light in nonlinear photonic crystals, and became the project leader of the Slow Light Program in CUDOS. In 2010, she was appointed Associate Professor at ECL/ INL in Lyon. Her research focuses on hybrid III-V/ Si platforms for all-optical signal processing on-chip. She has authored or co-authored 50 peer-reviewed publications that attracted over 1000 citations and she has delivered over 50 talks at international conferences.
