The new discovery will allow better use of fiber optics for imaging cells in the body
Brno, 11 August 2015
Although optical fiber is currently widely used in communication technology and medicine, their potential is not fully utilized. Research Team Scotland's University of Dundee, which was joined also by Professor Tomas Tyc from the Faculty of Science, Masaryk University (MU), now revealed new uses for fiber optics in medicine and biology, for example, a closer study of the processes taking place in the brain and development of Alzheimer's disease.
