Magnetic Cactus Experimentally Demonstrates Mathematical Plant Patterns
A promising light source for optoelectronic chips can be tuned to different frequencies
Chips that use light, rather than electricity, to move data would consume much less power—and energy efficiency is a growing concern as chips' transistor counts rise.
New theory suggests way to teleport energy long distances
Infrared light fills a "gap" in iron-based superconductor research
(Phys.org) —Superconductors are a fascinating group of materials in which electrons can flow with almost zero resistance. They have the potential to revolutionize electronics and power distribution, but ...
Topological light: Living on the edge
(Phys.org) —Topology—the understanding of how things are connected—remains abstract, even with the popular example of doughnuts and coffee cups. This concept, esoteric as it appears, is also neat because ...
