postheadericon More Slow Glass

Someone else has reviewed and updated the research into Slow Glass, this time with a little bit more scientific description. This published on laboratoryequipment.com dealing with work done at the University of Warwick talks about how scientists use ‘doughnut-shaped byproducts of quantum dots to slow and even freeze light’. ‘Details are reported in Physical Review Letters‘, which specialises in short publications; hence the ‘letters’.

A few searches on Physical Review Letters didn’t turn up anything so maybe it is the print edition, with online publication later. However, on the page of one of the lead researchers at University of Warwick there is a link to the news item and I note a podcast is due soon.
