New Photonics Breakthrough Could Lead to Unprecedented Internet Data Speeds

A new approach to trapping light in artificial photonic materials by a City College of New York-led team could lead to a tremendous boost in the transfer speed of data online.Research into topological photonic metamaterials headed by City College physicist Alexander B. Khanikaev reveals that long-range interactions in the  metamaterial changes the common behavior of light waves forcing them to localize in space.
