Scientists Create Diodes Made Of Light
“Photonics researchers at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have achieved the extra-ordinary by creating a diode consisting of light that can be used, for the first time, in miniaturised photonic circuits.”
10 GHz Optical Transistor Built Out Of Silicon
“In a significant step forward for all-optical computing, physicists build a silicon transistor that works with pure light.”
The Real Reasons Nothing Can Ever Go Faster Than Light
“It was September 2011 and physicist Antonio Ereditato had just shocked the world. Particles – in this case, neutrinos – had travelled faster than light. According to Einstein's theories of relativity, this should not have been possible.”
Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
