Researchers at the University of Southampton have transformed optical fibres into photocatalytic microreactors that convert water into hydrogen fuel using solar energy.

The ground-breaking technology coats the inside of microstructured optical fibre canes (MOFCs) with a photocatalyst which – with light – generates hydrogen that could power a wide range of sustainable applications.
