Image credit: Visakh MenonGraduate Center professor and City College of New York Physics Department Chair Vinod Menon and his team have published a new paper detailing a significant breakthrough in the world of photonics. The team—which conducted their fabrication work at the Advanced Science Research Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY—demonstrated the creation of a light-emitting diode (LED) from a novel material consisting of light and matter quasiparticles. The breakthrough could facilitate a number of technological advances, including development of LiFi—a wireless, LED-based optical networking system that offers higher speeds than WiFi.
