Researchers discovered that using a laser to produce ultrashort light flashes can transform a semiconductor to a metal and back again in 0.00000000000002 seconds.

Future technology may involve sci-fi transformation techniques like the recently discovered ability to transform metals to semiconductors and vice versa, using the power of the laser.

A group of researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society and the Humboldt-University of Berlin have discovered that a laser can convert a semiconductor to a metal and reverse it back in rou...
