Francois and Tibi performed a forth round of experiments for chemical fiber coating. The coating process, which takes place within a single drop, was perfected and we obtained the best results ever on glass and PMMA, see results.This is old news, but important enough to be publicly reported here. On Dec 17, 2011
Before we can call it a VICTORY we need to reproduced these last results once again and to better analyse/characterize the samples.
We are planning to launch a crowdfunding campaign for the design of a low cost device that would make it a joke for anyone to silver-coat optical fibers.
During our last meeting with representatives form Optech we realized that there is enough interest for our technique.
YOU can get involved in the optical fiber coating project. See more...
