Scientists first managed to convert light into an audible message

It would Seem, at first glance, it is impossible «recode» the flow of light into sound waves, because from the point of view of physics between them is not so much in common. But scientists time and again do the impossible. According to the editors of the journal Nature Communication, experts from the University of Sydney for the first time in the world to convert light into an acoustic signal. Such a mechanism would allow to create absolutely new type of storage media and can drastically change the entire IT industry.

As is known, photons of light are very quickly moving particles. So the transmission of the encoded data with the photon charges is a promising development, because such memory modules, and communications systems will accelerate any process associated with the processing and transmission of data. It is worth saying that, despite the attractiveness of such technology, process analysis, encryption and decryption «photon» data is extremely difficult. For these purposes, Australian scientists have developed a special chip which is used to detect a light signal.

Getting into the chip, the light beam interacts with the electromagnetic wave emitted by the device itself. This interaction causes sound vibrations, which lasts about 10 nanoseconds. Built-in sensors processing of the signal photons. In the end acoustic signal to a special chip, where the detection of the received message, and output it again gets high speed, becoming light. The information recorded in the chip can be treated as a normal bit. If the information is "1", and when it is not — "0". A more detailed description of the technology can be seen on video from ScienceAlert, the experts who posted it on their YouTube channel.
