Optical silica nanowires fabricated using a taper-drawing approach exhibit extraordinary uniformity, making them suitable for low-loss optical wave guiding. Air-clad optical nanowires can be used as subwavelength-diameter single-mode waveguides from the ultraviolet to the near-infrared spectral range. Using these nanowires as building blocks we assembled photonic devices that are much smaller than comparable existing devices, indicating the great potential for developing micro- and nanoscale photonic devices for future applications in a variety of fields such as optical communication, optical sensing and high-density optical integration.
