Signal transmission in a photonic computer without losses

Scientists have calculated a model of an optical system in which large losses in waveguides are compensated by a small gain. The newly discovered phenomenon means that a signal can be transmitted with virtually no losses, which up until now had been an unresolved issue with plasmonic and nanooptic devices.
