'Miracle' Mineral That Could Make Internet 1,000-times Faster

post-image
A rare mineral discovered in Russia in the 1830's could hold the key to boosting internet speeds 1,000 times faster than today. The mineral, perovskite, has a number of incredible properties. Perovskite (CaTiO3) is a calcium titanium oxide mineral. While scientists have known about the mineral for quite some time, researchers continue to find useful characteristics of this mineral. The mineral can use light instead of electricity to transfer data, allowing transfer speeds 1,000 times faster than current technology. This inexpensive and simple way to transfer data presents a multitude of opportunities to transform our digital lives in the future. https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2017/11/27/scientists-discover-miracle-mineral-that-could-make-internet-1000-times-faster
