New Computer Chip Design is the First of it’s Kind. Computing with light is the future for high speed communications and and computations. Computers of the future will be more energy efficient as a result of using light instead of electrons but there is significant research and development required before we will see commercial applications.

New Research Using New Terahertz Laser Technology. In the US, many of the nation’s bridges are aging, past their prime and supporting more traffic than they were originally designed for. Regular maintenance and inspection is critical to avoid catastrophic failures and the resulting death and injury.

Fusion energy holds the promise of being able to power the world almost indefinitly if we can ever master the extremely difficult requirements to do it safely. In order to recreate the conditions where fusion energy exists ( the sun) we need to be able heat materials to at least this temperature in a short […]

The Future Belongs to Light Based Computing. Computers as we know them today rely on electrons to function not just for the power they use but also for the millions of logic and memory circuits they contain. The speed of these type of computers is limited to the speed of the electrons in the media […]
