Taming Light: Researchers Slow the Travel of Rays

Researchers have successfully trapped light in a confined area for a longer amount of time than ever before achieved, slowing the travel time of a single ray.

According to a study recently published in the journal Applied Physics Letters, physicists at the University of Rochester were able to confine light in a nanocavity for several nanoseconds - cutting the distance the light would have traveled in that time by several meters.
