Stanford Researchers Develop Silicon Prism for Bending Light

Researchers at Stanford University have developed a prism-like device in silicon that can split a beam of light into different colors and bend the light at right angles.  The development is seen as having possible applications in fiber optic networks.  The device measures 8 microns in length and has been tested with both 1300-nanometer light and 1550-nanometer wavelengths.
