Tiny glow sticks

Optical data transmission allows information to be transmitted as light by way of optical waveguides in fiber optic networks. Researchers have now developed microscale optical waveguides. They have made microrods of lanthanide metal-organic frameworks. Their particular crystal structure ensures low-loss light conduction and the emission of polarized light.
