Tiny Fractal-Shaped Eye Implants Could Mimic Neurons, Allowing Blind Patients to See | Popular Science
Tiny Fractal-Shaped Eye Implants Could Mimic Neurons, Allowing Blind Patients to See | Popular Science: His solution is to embed a nanoscale clump of material onto the photodiode, which would self-assemble into fractal shapes. The clump would be deposited onto a photodiode using an inert gas. Eye surgeons would implant the fractal-enhanced devices inside the eyes of patients who have lost their vision, and the improved neuron interface would enable more light information to be relayed to the optic nerve. It would work with almost 100 percent efficiency, according to a University of Oregon news release.
