Optomechanical crystals to enable chaos-based secure data communications

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