Photons and Electrons Produce Hybrid Light-Matter Fluid

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Light is composed of waves, but it can also behave like a liquid. In certain circumstances it can ripple and spiral around obstacles. These liquid properties of light emerge when the photons that form the light wave interact with each other. The flow of polaritons encounters an obstacle in the supersonic (top) and superfluid (bottom) regime. Courtesy of Polytechnique Montreal. Researchers from Polytechnique Montreal and CNR Nanotec in Lecce, Italy have shown that combining light with electrons emits an even more dramatic effect. Researcher Daniele Sanvitto said the light can become a...Read full article
