Why skin is a better lens than glass

Recommended Posts

Persia

IT'S as if Humpty Dumpty was put back together again - stronger than before. Light that passes through an opaque medium, such as an eggshell, can be reassembled in sharper detail and over a wider field of view than if it passed through a transparent lens alone. Such "scattering" lenses could one day be used to see individual living cells, replacing biopsies and improving surgical precision.
