xt writes “A team of physicists, led by the University of Bonn’s Martin Weitz, have managed to create a Bose-Einstein condensate (here’s a more detailed explanation) out of photons, previously thought to be impossible. The research was published in the journal Nature (abstract, and the arXiv has the submitted paper as a PDF) and has possible applications on solar energy technology and shortwave lasers, which would be well-suited to the manufacture of computer chips as the process uses lasers to etch logic circuits onto semiconductor materials. Seems like Moore’s law is safe again!”
