Bioabsorbable Polymer Optical Waveguides For Deep-Tissue Photomedicine

A new technique, discovered by researchers at the University of St Andrews and Harvard Medical School, which delivers light deeper into human tissue than previously possible, could help heal wounds faster. Thin flexible optical fibers and waveguides using biocompatible polymers, such as lactic-acid based polymers and photo-crosslinkable hydrogels, have been developed by the team, which … Read more
