A pinch of fibre

Here are some wonderful new photographs, taken by Andy Vowles in our Cartographic Unit here at the University of Southampton.

The photos show Light Express laserist and sensor specialist Mohammad Belal, holding a fibre optic fabricated at the Optoelectronics Research Centre. (ORC)

To get technical - the laser system used to illuminate the fibre is a professional light show system combining the three primary colour lasers; a green red diode laser and green and blue ND: YAGs.

With thanks to Rachael Abbot of the ORC who helped to commission the photo - and aided with the art direction. The image will now be used by the University's marketing department for our website photos.
