Light From Optical Fibers Can Induce Sound Waves

Researchers have developed a promising new fiber-optic based chemical sensing method that uses light inside a fiber to induce sound waves outside it, providing indirect information about what surrounds the fiber. By overcoming a significant limitation of existing sensors, the new method could improve sensing capabilities for a wide range of applications, including industrial processes and remote detection of chemicals.
