Scientists "freeze" light inside a crystal for one minute

 

 

Researchers at the Technische Universität Darmstadt in Germany have managed to stop light for up to one minute inside a crystal and store digitally-encoded information inside it. The technique shatters previous records and could prove very useful in developing faster and highly-efficient quantum and optical computers.

Heisenberg is actually God.

It’s quantum. It’s always quantum.

The article relies on string theory which is still just that, a theory.

so is gravity.

Gravity has been tested with real world results.

has it? how does it work?

Probably Satan.

could be magic, or GOD!

Yes, but can you taste it?
Can YOU???


Gravity doesn’t melt steel beams

Don’t reckon it was hard to understand the article, but l wouldn’t venture too dar into the theory. It would get too fuzzy, too quickly.

Sometimes it's even made of cheese.

so is gravity

And essentialy, climate change, & evolution, & the big bang.

I’ve seen string, it definitely exists in the real world.

I'm not going to attempt to read that.  Can you tell me, after they've stopped it, can they start it again?  I mean re-start the same light they've stopped?  And when it's stopped, what does it look like?  If it's not moving, how is it still light?  And don't I stop light every time I turn off the light switch at night? 

 

OK, they're only half-serious questions, but to me a statement that someone has stopped light inside a crystal is basically meaningless.

 so you looked at the 'statement' and didn't read the article?

 I did actually read it.  It was the understanding that was the problem.

l heard from a computer wizz about 8 - 9 years ago that crystals were going to be the next big thing in computing. He just didn't know how they were going to work, but he was convinced.
