New form of light could make fiber optics more secure When light hits your eyeball, the spinning photons actually twist it (infinitesimally). The force of that spin, known as angular momentum, has always been thought to be a direct multiple of a quantum physics number called Planck’s constant. However, scientists from Trinity College Dublin discovered a form of light with an angular momentum that’s exactly half that amount. Though that may not sound
