The resolution of sensors is improving so quickly that I am close to the indifference point for further advances due to the resolution limits of my glass as well as diffraction limits, and that has me contemplating the physics of refraction and what the next leaps in optical engineering might be.

And that lead me to this:

Next week, we'll go even further and discuss how a magnetic flux can be used to control refraction in a two-dimensional quantum metamaterial.

C'mon Nikon, catch up..
