Fibre #laser research paves way for flexible #3D displays

According to a team from MIT's Research Laboratory of Electronics, the new light source - a fibre only slightly thicker than a human hair – has a brightness that can be controllably varied for different viewers. Most light emitters look the same from any angle. The team believes that the fibre opens the possibility of 3D displays woven from flexible fibres that project different information to viewers' left and right eyes. The fibre could also enable medical devices that can be threaded into narrow openings to irradiate diseased tissue, selectively activating therapeutic compounds while leaving healthy tissue untouched. The new fibre has a hollow core, surrounded by alternating layers of materials with different optical properties that act as a mirror. In the core is a droplet of fluid that can be moved up and down the fibre. When the droplet receives energy, or is 'pumped...
