Signal control with light frequencies

Light waves have the potential to boost the efficiency of conventional electronics by a factor of 100,000. Researchers describe how this vision may one day become a reality. In their scenario, one would exploit the electric field of laser light to control the flow of electrons in dielectric materials, which, in turn, may modulate transmitted light and switch current in electronic circuits at light frequencies.
