Plus, hear Donald Glover talk about his new show, and watch an impromptu Rick and Morty "mini-episode."
The new, the old, the rebooted—TV-Cap covers it all. On this fine Wednesday, we have a look at the television reboot for The Exorcist, a look ahead at Marvel's Luke Cage series, some footage from the next season of Gotham, and a peek into the past of Game of Thrones. Let's do this. Origins. How did Luke Cage gain his incredible powers? A new trailer for the superhero show teases his beginnings in the upcoming Netflix drama of the same name and f...

Merging Properties: A New Form Of Light?


New research suggests that it is possible to create a new form of light by binding light to a single electron, combining the properties of both.

According to the scientists behind the study, from Imperial College London, the coupled light and electron would have properties that could lead to circuits that work with packages of light - photons - instead of electrons.

It would also allow researchers to study quantum physical phenomena, which govern particles smaller than atoms, on a visible scale.

In normal materials, light interacts with a whole host of electrons present on the surface and within the material. But by using theoretical physics to model the behaviour of light and a recently-discovered class of materials known as topological insulators, Imperial researchers have found that it could interact with just one electron on the surface.

This would create a coupling that merges some of the properties of the light and the electron. Normally, light travels in a straight line, but when bound to the electron it would instead follow its path, tracing the surface of the material.

In the study, published in Nature Communications, Dr Vincenzo Giannini and colleagues modelled this interaction around a nanoparticle - a small sphere below 0.00000001 metres in diameter - made of a topological insulator.
