This shouldn’t be possible.

With the help of the increasingly useful material graphene, scientists have managed to confine light into the smallest space possible – the size of a single atom.

If light can be locked up so tightly, it opens up all kinds of possibilities for electronics, sensors, and imaging devices in the future, potentially leading to computer chips and laser sensors far smaller than anything we’re using today.
