faster than the speed of lightIf this is possible, it is a huge breakthrough, not just to computing, but to communications, both in bandwidth and speed. I admit to not understanding the claim entirely. But I have always wondered why there is a limit to velocity, when velocity is merely relative to a fixed point in space, or an observer.
Scientists can now “squeeze” light, a breakthrough that could make computers millions of times faster
Why, for example, are two particles moving toward each other, each moving at the speed of light, NOT moving at relative velocities of 2C regarding each other? I have always doubted that the particle's mass increases toward infinity merely due to being observed from reference point A, but not when simultaneously observed from moving reference point B.
This is further confused by the entangled particle problem in which one particle communicates with its entangled counterpart faster than the speed of light. Einstein's equations must necessarily be special cases in the same sense that Newton's physics relates to special cases.
At any rate, I suspect that all heads-up solid state researchers are all over this in corporate labs around the world.
