Optomechanical crystals to enable chaos-based secure data communications

Researchers from ICN2's Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures (P2N) Group published a study where the complex dynamics, including chaos, of optical nonlinearities are controlled by using optomechanical crystals and changing the parameters of the excitation laser. This discovery might allow the information to be coded by introducing chaos into the light carrying it.
