‘Laser Milestone’: Polariton Beam, Using 250 Times Less Power, Could Revolutionize Electronics – 7 June 2014

RT logoScientists at the University of Michigan have demonstrated a new way of making high-powered laser-like beams which require very little energy. The new beam could revolutionize popular electronics.

The prototype laser, which runs on electrical current and not light, requires 250 times less electricity to operate than its conventional counterpart made of the same material.

“This is big,” said Pallab Bhattacharya, the Charles M. Vest Distinguished University Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the James R. Mellor Professor of Engineering at U-M.
