The article comments on the report of Wenge Yang and colleagues about the fingertip-sized optical rubidium vapor cell which uses a hollow-core antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides on a silicon chip. The author said that Yang and colleagues demonstrated the saturation absorption spectroscopy on a chip. He added the presentation of the cell on a silicon chip could lead to compact devices capable of performing an optical-signal-processing task with the use of few photons.
