Möbius Strip: The Light Way

A Möbius strip is a 3-Dimensional structure which has one side. It is easy to create a Möbius strip using a piece of paper, however, they are not easy to find naturally. Recently, a team of researchers have demonstrated experimentally that you can produce a Möbius strip made of polarisation states of light. This was […]

Brain-like computing

Computers could soon function like a human brain. New research published in Advanced Optical Materials shows the possibility of optical computers with the ability to learn. The Photonics Institute (TPI) reproduced neural networks and synapses like those in the brain, using light-sensitive glass fibres. The team simulated neural resting state before mimicking the nerve firing […]
