Scientists discover how to turn light into matter after 80-year quest
Imperial College London physicists have discovered how to create matter from light - a feat thought impossible when the idea was first theorised 80 years ago.
Engineers take big step toward using light instead of wires inside computers
(Phys.org)—Stanford engineers have designed and built a prism-like device that can split a beam of light into different colors and bend the light at right angles, a development that could eventually lead ...
