See pictures bellow. Francois (the chemist!) and Tibi (the assistant) performed the first preliminary tests of wet silver deposition on optical fiber. Two tests were performed. As always, the second test was better than the first. We don't have a nicely coated optical fiber to show you, stay tuned, it's coming. We still need to adjust the debits of reagents in order to get a slow and clean precipitation and deposition

It seams that the silver doesn't want to stick to PMMA fiber, but there is a very good chance that it will stick to our 60 microns glass fiber.
