#Harvard’s Researchers recently announced that they had successfully developed that, light can travel fast, up-to infinity.It is designing the first chip of material which have a refractive index be zero, that mean the light can travel at infinity fast.
This new material was developed in Eric Mazur lab at #SEAS (School of Engineering and Applied Science),the professor is described in the journal Nature Photonics Nature Photonics.
“Light doesn’t typically like to be squeezed or manipulated, but this metamaterial permits you to manipulate light from one chip to another, to squeeze, bend, twist and reduce the diameter of a beam from the macroscale to the nanoscale,” said Mazur. “It’s a remarkable new way to manipulate light.”
Instantly when you have a material like this with a refractive index of 0, things get weird. As light passes through it, the crests and troughs stretch infinitely to create a flat line where oscillations occur as a factor of time, not distance. Flattening the wavelength allows the illumination to be easily manipulated without losing energy. The industrial potential — from telecommunications to quantum computing — is nearly unbounded.
