In a recent study that was published in Science Advances, a group of scientists developed a novel technique for producing photonic time crystals, a kind of synthetic material that can amplify the light that is shone on it. This research has the potential to advance wireless communication as well as lasers.The first time crystals were found in 2012, and the most common ones, called mundane time crystals, have a structural pattern that only repeats in space. In contrast, and as their name implies, time crystals have possess a structural pattern that repeats in time. Until 2022, there was skepticism within the scientific community that time crystals could even exist, but research that year put those notions to bed.
