Description

The magical internet-providing properties of fibre optics are well known. But hardly anyone has heard of fibre optics that can diagnose cancer or detect gravity waves, and Matthew Partridge (Southampton University) isn't happy about that. These wonderful, cutting-edge devices can do amazing things and fix almost any problem. Don't believe something so tiny can save the world? Come challenge Matthew with any problem and he’ll tell you how fibre optic sensors can fix it! 'The show is educational, packed full of fascinating insight into the invention and uses of fibre optics' (Physics World).
