Microchip Breakthrough Could Help Us Build a New Kind of Computer

On Monday, a team of scientists in Australia announced an exciting breakthrough: For the first time, researchers were able to turn light into sound on a microchip. But—as crazy-sounding new physics applications tend to be—it’s probably going to be a long time before you see one of these chips on a computer you can buy. More importantly, what the heck does “turn light into sound” even mean?

To understand the importance of this achievement, you should know there are a ton of researchers dedicating their lives to a (potentially silly-seeming) task: making light particles do what electrons do in computers. If computers ran on light particles, called photons, they could operate with less energy and produce less heat than conventional devices while taking advantage of already-in-use fiber optic cables. But photons are very, very fast. And actually doing something with them requires slowing them down.
