Title: CONFIGURING OPTICAL FIBERS TO EMIT RADIATION BY BENDING
Abstract:
Optical fibers are provided herein, which comprise a core and a cladding and have at least one region of the cladding that is arranged to emit electromagnetic radiation from the core upon bending the optical fibers beyond a bending threshold. The optical fibers are integrated in devices that either use bended fibers or induce the bending upon contacting a target, to emit the radiation at the target.
