A promising new application of graphene has been described by researchers at MIT, Columbia University and IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center in the latest issue of Nature Photonics. It has been revealed that graphene in photo detectors could convert optical signals to electrical signals in integrated optoelectronic computer chips.

Light will be used by them instead of electricity to move data both within and between computer chips. This could drastically reduce the power consumption and heat production. These are the problems to engulf with increase in computational capacity.

Physicists Nima Arkani-Hamed and Jaroslav Trnka recently published a significant advance in the study of Scattering Amplitudes. These are formulas that physicists use to calculate everything from the chance an unstable particle will decay to the probability of new discoveries at the Large Hadron Collider. The two reformulated scattering amplitudes within a popular framework called N=4 super Yang-Mills, treating them as properties of abstract geometrical objects. In doing so, Arkani-Hamed and Trnka hope to gain a deeper understanding of the nature of quantum field theory.
