Scientists develop new method of high-precision optical measurement

An international collaborative of scientists has devised a method to control the number of optical solitons in microresonators, which underlie modern photonics. Photonics is a dynamically developing field of modern physics. Microresonators are basic structural elements of photonics, an integral part of almost all sophisticated optical and microwave devices. In fact, resonators are circular light traps.
