Future computer: Atoms packed in an 'egg carton' of light?
Scientists at Ohio State University have taken a step toward the development of powerful new computers -- by making tiny holes that contain nothing at all.
The holes -- dark spots in an egg carton-shaped surface of laser light -- could one day cradle atoms for quantum computing.
