OSA | Monolithic ultra-high-Q lithium niobate microring resonator
so lithium niobate makes for great resonators for fiber optic networks, but is chemically inert so you can't etch it easily. Now, it looks like they've achieved usable dry plasma etching to make waveguides/resonators.

Breaking Lorentz reciprocity to overcome the time-bandwidth limit in physics and engineering | Science
Telecomms just got a huge breakthrough. But apparently radar guys in the 40's knew about using non-reciprocal resonators to keep EM from pushing back into waveform generators, but never published?

[1404.5293] Collection of remote optical signals by air waveguides
So, basically jacketing a laser beam with a concentric pulse laser to form an air waveguide works. Which seems simpler than flat out co-beaming a pulse laser to explode the air out of the way.
