Glowing spheres emerge from a bright collision with a spring like coil between them. The background features basic line diagrams of electrical circuits featuring coils, exes and other symbols.

We conduct curiosity-driven research that explores the most basic building blocks of nature with an eye toward potential applications in information science and technology.
