MIT Develops Metamaterial That Slows Down The Speed of Light
There's always a lot of fuss about getting other things to go as fast or faster than the speed of light. But what about changing the speed of light? Is there anything useful we could do by slowing light down rather than speeding things up? As it turns out, there are all kinds of benefits to be had from slowing light down and making it easier to capture, which is why MIT has been working on nanotech "metamaterials" that can do just that: Slow down the speed of light.Read on...
