Described in the journal Physical Review Letters, these 'electromagnetic wormholes' are the electromagnetic radiation (light) based equivalent of space-time wormholes and could function as invisible light-carrying cables.
If you were to gaze down one end of such a wormhole, sitting on a nearby table, you could find yourself gazing through a tube at your garden, for example.
The clever thing is that this tube would be invisible, hence a proposal to use it to create three dimensional video displays, albeit with a limited viewing angles. There may be more exotic applications too, in superfast computers that rely on light and improved body scanners.
Although the wormhole designs are at present theoretical, the technologies for making them already exist and are being studied to make invisibility shields which can cloak objects by bending light around them.
But with Dr Nicorovici he outlines how to do it with the help of materials with bizarre optical properties that were first postulated in 1968 by Victor Veselago, a physicist working at the General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow.
His work remained obscure until six years ago, when his mathematical fantasy was realised by the creation of superlenses that can make objects placed near them invisible.
The ALICE Collaboration is building a dedicated heavy-ion detector to exploit the unique physics potential of nucleus-nucleus interactions at LHC energies. Our aim is to study the physics of strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where the formation of a new phase of matter, the quark-gluon plasma, is expected.
The existence of such a phase and its properties are key issues in QCD for the understanding of confinement and of chiral-symmetry restoration. For this purpose, we intend to carry out a comprehensive study of the hadrons, electrons, muons and photons produced in the collision of heavy nuclei. Alice will also study proton-proton collisions both as a comparison with lead-lead collisions in physics areas where Alice is competitive with other LHC experiments

This is an excellent find zorgon. The moment I noticed they are talking about phase conjugation I knew it was not a joke.
If you start up with a minuscule signal and you keep reflecting it off of a phase conjugated mirror the signal keeps growing in strength even though you are not inputting any more energy. After awhile you are left with enormous amount of energy and what you do with it is left to imagination.
There's a really good video lecture from Tom Bearden where he goes into detail about scalar (standing) waves and phase conjugation, and all the science behind it. Also, my suspicion is that Tesla's infamous pocket earthquake machine utilized this principle of phase conjugation, where it would build up signal over time...

i believe the current plan is to use lasers and the concept you described to try to create stars (they are actually doing this already):
i will need to look up the more current article, but they are firing this type of laser at hydrogen isotopes, creating a mini star.
LANL is using it to create high gravity. I would suppose the LHC will provide the extreme gravity sought that the lasers haven't been able to publicly achieve. However, i believe that based on the above doc (and others) that this laser technology is in full swing and in full use.
