Light-Operated Computer Chip Implements All 5 Basic Logic Operations Without Electricity

The demand for next-generation computers that can quickly calculate and process a lot of information is rapidly increasing. A logic device is a circuit that obtains an output value by applying one or more logic inputs to certain logic operation (AND, OR, etc.). A logic circuit can be made by combining a plurality of electronic transistors.
