Current technology utilises circuits that rely on classical physics. This means that all circuits currently in production have an intrinsic resistance and generate heat when current flows through them. This heating effect may only be small in laptops and phones, but when scaled up to industrial-sized data centres, the results are tangible. Data centres produce enough heat that they generate their own microclimates. To combat the significant effects that this heating has on global warming, we need to invest in zero-resistance (dissipationless) devices. My research is investigating polaritons, particles formed of light and matter that are strong candidates for the realisation of dissipationless technology.
