New chiral property of silicon discovered: Photonic applications

23 julio 2015

By encoding information in photons via their spin, ‘photonic’ computers could be orders of magnitude faster and efficient than their current-day counterparts. Likewise, encoding information in the spin of electrons, rather than just their quantity, could make ‘spintronic’ computers with similar advantages. Engineers and physicists have now discovered a property of silicon that combines aspects of all of these desirable qualities.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
