A thousand times smaller than a grain of sand—glass sensors 3D-printed on optical fiber

Posted by in categories: innovation, internet

In a first for communications, researchers in Sweden 3D printed silica glass micro-optics on the tips of optic fibers—surfaces as small as the cross section of a human hair. The advance could enable faster internet and improved connectivity, as well as innovations like smaller sensors and imaging systems.
