Researchers Successfully ‘Grow’ Lasers on Silicon Substrate

The Digital Revolution was built on a deep foundation of silicon semiconductors. Integrated circuits, which have allowed humans to create everything from smartphones to the space shuttle, are all built in these tiny wafers of semiconductor material. By passing electrical signals at lightning-fast speeds through silicon semiconductors, we’ve been able to achieve some pretty remarkable… Read more »
