UVA, Peking Univ. and Cal Tech team achieves broadest microcomb spectral span on record

Xu Yi, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Virginia, collaborated with Yun-Feng Xiao’s group from Peking University and researchers at Caltech to achieve the broadest recorded spectral span in a microcomb. Their peer-reviewed paper, “Chaos-assisted two-octave-spanning microcombs,” was published May 11, 2020, in Nature Communications.
