Analyzing and Experimenting with Acoustic Laser Wave Guide

What is a laser? The current world perception of a laser is a strong intensified beam of light that is projected in a directionless way. But what if we could change that? What if we can shine a beam of light in 1 direction but actually have the light in the other without any physical interaction. We are doing 2 experiments. First using hydrophone to cause density differential to guide the laser; using the principle of total refraction. Secondly we will be doing an experiment where we process LED light into a fiber optics and to a Waveguide to see if we can be able to guide light efficiently. This opens up new horizons in the medical field and much more as this gives an illusion of light to become a tangible.

The SURF Rose Hills scholarship gives me an opportunity to dedicate myself to what I endorse. I am given the freedom to express my passion in the field of academia without having to go through a financial struggle. It also allows me to be able to apply the knowledge I have learned in school to tackle real life problems. Thank you to the Rose Hills Foundation, I appreciate this program for this opportunity!
