Wireless nanorod-nanotube film enables light stimulation of blind retina

breakthrough could lead to artificial retinas for visually impaired

Groundbreaking wireless material triggers brain activity in response to light

Scientists have developed a new light-sensitive film that could one day form the basis of a prosthetic retina to help people suffering from retinal damage or degeneration. Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers collaborated with colleagues from Tel Aviv University and Newcastle University in the research, which was published in the journal Nano Letters.
