Bowtie-funnel combo best for conducting light; team found answer in undergrad physics equation Running computers on virtually invisible beams of light rather than microelectronics would make them faster, lighter and more energy efficient. A version of that technology already exists in fiber optic cables, but they’re much too large to be practical inside a computer….
