Semiconductors built inside optical fibers

March 8, 2011

Dr. Nick Orf and other members of the Fink group have developed a method to build semiconductor devices inside a fiber. This work continues the intriguing fiber research from the Fink group, such as the smart fibers that sense sound and light, the singing fibers, and the perfect mirror fibers.
The research is published in PNAS and reported in IEEE Spectrum.
