13 photonics startups to watch, according to investors
Photonics startups are using products that use light or light particles — photons, rather than electrons — to transmit, detect and work with more data in a way that is faster and more energy efficient.
Photo-Induced Superconductivity On A Chip
Researchers have demonstrated ability to turn on superconductivity with a laser beam can be integrated on a chip, opening up a route toward opto-electronic applications.
Bill Gates-backed startup to use old wood to remove carbon from the air
It then condenses it into dense carbon blocks, wraps it in a proprietary polymer barrier and stores it underground in an engineered storage site. The carbon within will be locked away and prevented from being re-released. It is called carbon casting.
