A team of researchers at Yale University, led by professor Hong Tang, discovered a "repulsive" light force that can be used to control components on silicon microchips, meaning future nanodevices could be controlled by light rather than electricity. Funding for the project included a seed grant from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation (ECCS 08-46919).
