Two 16 micron diameter micro-ring lasers coupled via a waveguide
The optical memory element exploits the clockwise and anti-clockwise lasing properties of micro-ring cavities. The device switches between its two modes within 20 ps and occupies an area of 18 microns x 40 microns. (Credit: COBRA research institute, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven)
