An International team of scientists of the New physics and technology of the ITMO University, nonlinear physics Centre, Australian National University, and Korea University was able to conduct an experiment, during which they caught an electromagnetic wave in the resonator of gallium arsenide with a size of several hundred nanometers and held her record for a long time. Before that light has been able for so long to keep only the resonators is much larger. In addition, scientists have experimentally shown that on the basis of the developed system can realize the effective nanoprecipitation frequencies of light. The results of the studies sparked widespread interest in the international community and was published in the journal Science — one of the most...
