Playing with nano-light
Physics News Update has a story on Nader Engheta, who is designing sub-wavelength structures for manipulating light. Basically, Engheta has found that sub-wavelength structures can resonate with light, and propagate it (pass it from one place to another). This means that optical computing and processing components can be made very small indeed.
