  • Portuguese Scientist Talks About Optical Technologies

    During the METANANO-2016 conference, Mario Silverinya, a scientist from the University of Lisbon, talked about the possibilities of topological effects in continuous systems — something that was deemed impossible not so long ago. This can lead to the creation of wave guides where light won’t dissipate, as well as contribute to technologies for decreasing the size and increasing efficiency of electronic components. In an interview for our portal, he spoke of light manipulation and the importance of popularizing science.
