Researchers are developing an optical fiber made from gel derived from marine algae

Publicado em 28 julho 2020
An optical fiber made from agar has been produced at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. This device is edible, biocompatible and biodegradable. It can be used in vivo for imaging body structure, local delivery of light in phototherapy or optogenetics (eg stimulation of neurons with light to study nerve circuits in a living brain) and localized drug delivery. Another possible application is the detection of microorganisms in specific organs, in which [...]
