US researchers have used diamond to develop a new class of Raman laser sufficiently compact to fit on a photonic chip. The device uses a nanoscopic diamond resonator shaped like a racetrack to convert one frequency of laser light to an entirely different range of wavelengths, opening up new options for broadband data communications and many other applications.
