Scientists from Harvard University have created a material in which light travels infinitely fast
Optics is already more widely used in the world, I think, the further we in the study of quantum properties of light, the closer to normal teleportation. The transmission speed of light in a substance grows, it will continue to grow, and will finish the hole in another dimension and real-time information anywhere in the Universe regardless of distance. That`s all going to end:) Researchers from Harvard University announced that they had developed a method of manipulating light at the nano level, the discovery could lead to revolution in the field of communications. The invention allowed scientists to create the metamaterial, which is made of silicon structures based on silicon successfully embedded in resin and enclosed in a gold film. This material obviously has a refractive index close or equal to zero. Simply put, this allows the light flux passes through the material infinitely fast, without breaking the laws of physics. The speed of the light flux through the material are still not up to 300 000 km/h, but still it is the fastest in the Universe an optical fiber. However, the flow of light waves can be adjusted, but this is in the future. To put it more simply the phase velocity is changed and light is split by phase meets greater resistance even in contact with the walls of the waveguide. If you Shine a flashlight into the water, the light waves are refracted slightly, because water is a denser medium than air. When we have a material with an index of refraction of zero, things get a little weird. While light passes through it, the angle of incidence and angle of reflection are equal as usual, but the distortion is much less. This is more than a theoretical exercise in quantum physics. Scientists are working on light wave and manipulating it to achieve the maximum possible reduction of losses in the fiber. Industrial potential in the field of quantum computers is enormous. "In quantum optics, the lack of phase limited waves quantum emitters to produce photons, which are always in phase with each other," says Philip Munoz, co-author of the research. "This discovery will improve quantum communication between qubits even over long distances". Of course, there is no information when this technology leave the lab and will be implemented in the industrial sector.
