IPAS revolutionary research featured in Optics Express

 IPAS researchers led by Dr Stephen Warren-Smith and Prof Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem have fabricated an imaging optical fibre using a new technique of extruding glass through metal 3D printed dies. This opens opportunities for ultra-small, high-resolution imaging with potential for imaging and sensing inside previously inaccessible regions of the body.
