...eath absorbs T-wave energy very quickly, and fiber optics
don't transmit T-waves. By blending some aspects of both these technologies, Mittleman's team devised a system to guide T-waves in and out of a confined space. This could prove useful for sensing applications that range from the mundane -- scanning p...

Doctors focus on pupil size for safety of laser vision correction
... team that has used a technology known as adaptive optics
to discover dozens of previously unknown subtle imperfections in the eye, and he has found that those imperfections loom more important as the pupil size gets larger. He reports that if a surgeon treats a large enough swath of the eye for such patien...

From sci-fi to reality microendoscopy to diagnose breast cancer?
... endoscopes have been too large. Advances in fibre optics
have produced endoscopes less than 1 mm across - ideal in size but with poor picture quality because they contain very few glass fibres. So the Guys team, working with endoscope designers and manufacturers Acueity Inc. from California, enlisted ideas...
