Tiny New Cable May Spur Big Technological Advances

Washington, DC [Reuters] Scientists have created a tiny cable — much thinner than a human hair — through which they can transmit visible light, potentially paving the way for improvements in solar energy, computing and medicine. … It has an inner wire surrounded by an insulator and then another metal sheath. This enables the cable to carry electromagnetic signals with wavelengths bigger than its own diameter.
