Is It Possible to Make Matter From Light?
In 1934, physicists Gregory Breit and John A. Wheeler developed a theory for converting matter into light. Reporting in Nature Photonics, scientists describe a method for creating a “photon-photon collider” that could prove the theory. Physicist Edward Hill, a co-author on the paper, describes how this collider could be created with existing technology.
Edward Hill is research associate of plasma physics at The Blackett Laboratory at Imperial College London in London, United Kingdom.
