University of Sydney Researchers Create First 3D Printed Fiber Optics with Desktop 3D Printer (Video)

Recently, we covered some exciting research being pursued by the University of Southampton relating to the use of 3D printing for the creation of uniquely shaped fiber optics. Though their technique will likely involve the selective laser sintering of pure glass powder, it has been brought to my attention by one 3DPI reader that Southampton’s project is not the first to unite 3D printing and fiber optics.
