Excitons

“A PHYSICS BREAKTHROUGH COULD LEAD TO A NEW GENERATION OF ADVANCED ELECTRONICS”: https://futurism.com/the-byte/physics-breakthrough-advanced-electronics-excitons.

The Laboratory of Nanoscale Electronics and Structures sounds like something that would exist in the Aurora Rhapsody universe of 2323, doesn’t it? I’m glad to know one exists today.

As a science fiction writer, I’m well acquainted with the challenges of naming new materials and technologies. The struggle to come up with a straight-forward yet memorable name that conveys meaning without being a tongue-twister is real. Still…’excitons’ made me giggle. And possibly roll my eyes a little.
