Fun with fiber optics

Abstract:
Bacteria are everywhere - in Petri dishes, under microscopes, and now, in electronics.

A University professor recently assisted a former student in discovering a new, more natural way to create components for electronic devices.

The component is called a nanotube, and it comes from a certain kind of bacteria called Shewanella. It's electronically conductive, and when exposed to light, the conductivity increases, Michael Sandowsky , professor of soil, water and climate, said.
