Infrared lasers one step away from super-computer dream

Do you always complain about slow internet? Maybe you’ve got a billion tabs open on your browser and the whole computer freezes up?

That may not be the case in the future. New nanotechnology research published today shows how Australian National University scientists have managed to produce lasers from infrared light using ultra-thin wires called nanowires.

These scientists say that the research will be a step closer to producing super-fast computers in the near future.
