Summer Science Exhibition 2016: 100m bubbles

Harnessing the physics of bubbles to channel powerful cutting lasers.
To channel low power laser light to where it is needed we often use flexible glass threads, known as fibre optics. But it is more difficult to steer powerful laser beams, because they can cut through these solid glass fibres.
This exhibit showcases our innovative solution to trap and channel these high-powered lasers using the most delicate glass bubbles.
Our free, week-long festival (Monday 4 July - Sunday 10 July) features 22 curated exhibits and a series of inspiring talks and activities for all ages.
