New Quasiparticle Could Improve Efficiency Of Photonic Devices-1

Half-light half-matter particle, called topolariton, could usher a new age of photonic devices

Scientists at Caltech have conceived a new type of “quasiparticle”, known as topolariton, which could pave the way for more efficient photonic devices, such as photovoltaic cells, displays, optical amplifiers as well as barcode scanners, that can easily detect, produce and manipulate light. Developed by Gil Refael, a theoretical physics and condensed matter theory professor,…
