IPAS highlighted in Washington DC

Terrific to see IPAS’ research highlighted in a exhibition at the Australian embassy in Washington DC – fantastic acknowledgement of groundbreaking research!

Congratulations to Prof Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem and team!

Microstructured Fibre

Cross-section of a hollow-core soft glass fibre. It guides light through the black air holes, rather than the grey glass areas. This is also the first fibre that can guide high-intensity mid-infrared light, giving it applications in the medical and defence fields as a sensor for liquids and gases.

Size: the central hole is 24 micrometres across.
