xt writes: A team of physicists, lead by the University of Bonn's Martin Weitz, have managed to create a Bose-Einstein condensate (detailed explanation here) out of photons, previously thought to be impossible. The research was published in the journal Nature and has possible applications on solar energy technology and shortwave lasers, which would be well-suited to the manufacture of computer chips as the process uses lasers to etch logic circuits onto semiconductor materials. Seems like Moore's law is safe again!
