Best of Last Week – Halting photons, a peer review problem and circadian clock shifting from e-readers

(Phys.org)—It was an interesting week even as we entered the holiday season, researchers at MIT found that halting photons could lead to miniature particle accelerators and perhaps improved data transmission. The light trapping process discovered last year involved twisting the polarization direction now appears to be related to a wide range of other seemingly unrelated phenomena. Also, physicist...
