Addiction Switch Scientists at Scripps Research say they’ve found a way to reverse rats’ dependent on alcohol by blasting particular neurons in their brains with laser beams — a change they likened...
Using a cap of electrodes and a neural implant, a doctor can feel patients’ pain. That’s fiction, granted, but researchers are developing similar technology that could be available in the next...
Researchers have developed a device capable of allowing multiple beams of light to transmit information without expending energy converting it to electricity. Future iterations could see smaller...
A new method of using photons to carry information might provide a new wireless solution for communication. A collaborative team of researchers developed a way to “twist photons” to improve on...
San Francisco has signed off on a plan to supply all homes and businesses in the city with a fiber optic internet connection. This could set a precent for works around the world.
Researchers just sent a quantum-secured message containing more than one bit of information per photon through the air above a city.
Researchers from China successfully teleported a photon from Earth to a satellite 500 km away. The work is an essential step towards establishing a global-scale quantum internet.
Chinese physicists have developed a way to demonstrate quantum secure direct communication using quantum memory. The method could be developed further and provide a starting point for the future of...
Cheaper launches into space are opening up a new world of possibilities for manufacturing. The conditions provided by factories operating in low orbit will allow for some truly revolutionary...
Researchers were able to build an integrated circuit-based transmitter that can send data faster than fiber optic cables and 5G wireless networks If this development leads to such speeds in...
