Tying light in knots

A team of physicists has used knot theory – a branch of abstract mathematics – to create holograms where light can flow in whirls and eddies, forming lines in space called optical vortices. This new research, published in Nature Physics, demonstrates a physical application for a branch of mathematics previously considered completely abstract. The researchers, […]
