Fibre Optics can save the world

Dr Matthew Partridge, Southampton University
18th January 2021 7:30pm by Zoom

The magical internet-providing properties of fibre optics are well-known. But hardly anyone has heard of fibre optics that can diagnosis cancer or detect gravity waves, and Matthew Partridge is not happy about that. These wonderful, cutting-edge devices can do amazing things and fix almost any problem. Don’t believe something so tiny can save the world? Come hear about the history of fibre optics and what exciting things they can do beyond streaming movies and challenge Matthew to solve any problem you can name with fibre optics.
