Rei Furukawa and her colleagues are conducting research on plastic optical fibers. "We fabricate our own fibers, for example using unique monomer compositions, by adding dopants, dyes, fluorophores, nano-crystals, for example," explains Furukawa. "We are investing new possibilities of plastic-based optical fibers."
