Two Filipino physicists have just found a way to slow light down without touching it, by making it “twist” as it moves through space.
The discovery has potential practical applications in telecommunications and computer technology.
Researchers Nestor Bareza and Nathaniel Hermosa from the University of the Philippines’ National Institute of Physics have been working with a special kind of laser called a Laguerre-Gauss (LG) beam, which has orbital angular momentum—or, put simply, it “twists”—as it travels through space.
In their paper published today, May 27, in the journal Scientific Reports, Bareza and Hermosa were able to precisely describe in mathematical terms how the …
