Photons Form Cooper Pairs Like Superconducting Electrons: Study

A team of researchers observed photons, constituent particles of light, swapping energy with other photons. They described this as a process similar to how electrons pair up in materials that conduct current without resistance in superconductors. The team from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Brazil observed photons swapping energy like electrons. The team says the future of their research lies in seeing if photons bound together as electrons. If photons produce an effect similar to superconductivity, it could mean a major breakthrough for electronics and data storage.
