  By Nicole Casal Moore -<br><br><a href="">With precarious particles called polaritons that straddle the worlds of light and matter, University of Michigan researchers have demonstrated a new, practical and potentially more efficient way to make a coherent laser-like beam.<br><br>They have made what’s believed to be the first polariton laser that is fueled by electrical current as opposed to light, and also works at room temperature, rather than way below zero.</a><br><br><a href="">READ MORE ON UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN ENGINEERING</a>
