There's 400 percent more light in intergalactic space than sources could produce, say researchers. Could dark matter be the cause?
Physicists have built a tractor beam out of lasers that can both repel and attract objects across distances 100 times farther than previously possible.
Using Intel's silicon photonics chips, Fujitsu demonstrates how fiber-optic links can replace copper wires to handle PCI Express data transfer. The result: a machine that's easier to keep cool.
With 4K video and cloud computing on the rise, the Chinese company argues that fixed broadband must improve.
In another breakthrough in the weird, wonky world of quantum physics, researchers teleport data an unprecedented distance with a novel technique -- inching us closer to the rise of a 'quantum Internet.'
Researchers are working on glass that could detect fluids simply through contact, which may hold medical benefits.
Big Blue sets a five-year plan to figure out the manufacturing technology for the great-grandchild of today's chip tech -- and the even more different generations beyond that.
We could see physical matter created out of nothing but light within 12 months if a new particle collider works as posited.
Sure, solar power is clean and green, but to make it more efficient, researchers have had to use some nasty stuff. Until now.
Big Blue researchers have figured out how to use standard manufacturing processes to make chips with built-in optical links that can transfer 25 gigabits of data per second.
