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.

Light and non-flammable Lithium-ion electrodes

A new method to manufacture self-supported ceramic electrodes for batteries, without any flammable material, has been developed. These electrodes can be flat and very thick or can have other shapes, like tubes, and their capacity per unit area can be up to ten times higher than that of commercial ones.
