While the laws of physics weren't made to be broken, sometimes they need revision. A major current law has been rewritten thanks to the three-port transistor laser, developed by Milton Feng and Nick Holonyak Jr. at the University of Illinois. With the transistor laser, researchers can explore the behavior of photons, electrons and semiconductors. The device could shape the future of high-speed signal processing, integrated circuits, optical communications, supercomputing and other...

U.S. scientists have constructed a light-emitting transistor that has set a record for a signal-processing modulation speed. University of Illinois researchers said they achieved a speed of 4.3 gigahertz, breaking the previous record of 1.7 gigahertz held by a light-emitting diode. Then by internally connecting the base and collector of a light-emitting transistor, they also created a new form of light-emitting diode, which modulates up to 7 gigahertz -- breaking the speed record once again....

 Researchers have constructed a light-emitting transistor that has set a new record with a signal-processing modulation speed of 4.3 gigahertz, breaking the previous record of 1.7 gigahertz held by a light-emitting diode.But, the researchers didn't stop there. By internally connecting the base and collector of a light-emitting transistor, they created a new form of light-emitting diode, which modulates at up to 7 gigahertz, breaking the speed record once again.In a pair of papers...
