Using electrical pulses, researchers were able to transfer spin information from electrons to the photons that make up light, allowing information to be transmitted over long distances at the speed of light. Their method allows operation at room temperature, without the use of a magnetic field and with the possibility of electrical control.

This breakthrough opens the door to numerous applications, including ultra-fast communications and quantum technologies. This is an important step forward in the field of optical communications, which could change the way planets interact and improve the development of various technologies on Earth.
