The cover picture shows a silicon image amplifier, which is described in the Feature Article by Bahram Jalali, University of California, among other examples for the recent impressive progress in silicon photonics (pp. 213–224).
A pixelated image is simultaneously amplified and imaged as it propagates through a multimode waveguide (horizontal axis represents the propagation direction). The device is being developed as an image preamplifier for applications in laser remote sensing and imaging. (© 2008 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
