Meg and Aniela presenting the Solar Fiber concept.
Explaining our proof-of-concept.
We integrated fiber optic threads into fabrics and presented them as examples of how a 0.5 mm solar fiber could be used in everyday textile applications. Light travels from the surface of the fiber optic threads to the ends where we placed photodiodes.
Demonstrating our proof-of-concept by connecting a multimeter to the photodiodes and shining a bright light on the embedded optic fibers. The photodiodes generate about 0.5V.
After the presentation there was time for questions and discussion.
