Researchers Develop New Technique to Use Light in Metals to Transmit Information

A team of electrical engineers from the University of Utah have developed microscopic assemblies that use light to transmit information and were produced using an inexpensive inkjet printer.

The technique uses electrical conductivity in these microstructures and could be used to quickly produce superfast components for electronic devices. It could also have applications to increase the speed of wireless technology and the ability to print magnetic materials.

Read more about the technology called plasmonics and how it could change the future of producing superfast components.
