Scientists trick the light fantastic

2 marzo 2015

What if one day, your computer, TV or smart phone could process data with light waves instead of an electrical current, making those devices faster, cheaper and more sustainable through less heat and power consumption? That’s just one possibility that could one day result from an international research collaboration that’s exploring how to improve the performance of plasmonic devices. The manipulation of light through tiny technology could lead to big benefits for everything from TVs to microscopes.
