Biocompatible fibers to use light to stimulate cells or sense signs of disease

A biocompatible and highly stretchable optical fiber has now been created from hydrogel — an elastic, rubbery material composed mostly of water. The fiber, which is as bendable as a rope of licorice, may one day be implanted in the body to deliver therapeutic pulses of light or light up at the first sign of disease.
