Future optical communication that's vastly more reliable and faster than what's commonly available today will require new technology. Modern communication is based on charge transfer, which can result in large transmission losses during certain data-intensive applications. Excitons are alternatives, yet they face technical challenges for widespread implementation.
Now, researchers from Japan have overcome a critical bottleneck that might give rise to ultrafast optical communication technology based on excitons. Their results are published in npj 2D Materials and Applications
