Engineers at UC Berkeley have found a way to grow nanolasers directly onto a silicon surface, an achievement that could lead to a new class of faster, more efficient microprocessors, as well as to powerful biochemical sensors that use optoelectronic chips. “Our results impact a broad spectrum of scientific fields, including materials science, transistor technology, laser science, optoelectronics and optical physics,” said the study’s principal investigator, Connie Chang-Hasnain, UC Berkeley professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences.
